  • UserVoice, a company I founded 3 years ago is a leader in helping businesses support and get feedback from their customers. Based in the heart of San Francisco. We've had over 60,000 organizations come through the turnstile. We're a multi-million dollar a year business which thousands of customers and ten of thousands non-paying free users all using a platform which services ten of millions of end-users. We're profitable. All with only a 9 person team, just under a $1MM in funding. We're kicking the ass of companies that are many times our size both in terms of people and money raised. And we're having a fun time doing that.\n
