It was great to read about Buffer getting $400,000, even though they weren’t able to stay in the U.S. It was also great how they pulled the curtain back a little bit so you could see how it all came together for them.
I met the pre-seed round Buffer at a BizSpark sponsered event on SEO in San Jose last month. They were really nice guys. They showed me their app, gave me a tour of how their product worked, told me how their business was doing, and even gave me a tour of their admin panel and showed me their growth curve. It was truly interesting to hear them discuss their business, and hear a bit of their insight and plans. Listening to them talk, I thought to myself, this is a useful product, and I hope they succeed.
