Today instead of talking about Balsamiq Mockups (the product), I would like to tell you a bit more about Balsamiq (the company). My friend Peldi started it back in 2008 as a solo founder: totally bootstrapped, doing everything himself. The product was immediately successful and Peldi was forced to hire people and grow the company. In the 8 years since, Balsamiq has become the undisputed leader in their space and also a very inspiring company to follow. They still haven’t taken any outside investment, and have 21 employees now, all geographically distributed. On their “Life @ Balsamiq” blog they share a lot of their very progressive company policies and everything else they learn along the way (including revenue numbers every year!). Check it out, I think it’ll be useful to you, no matter what you’re making. You can read it all at blogs.balsamiq.com/team
