As I’ve mentioned here before, I’m a co-founder the VP Community Marketing at PBwiki, an online startup in Silicon Valley.
This Monday Monday, February 4th, my co-founders and I will be speaking at an SDforum event on PBwiki and entrepreneurship. We’ll talk about how we grew, what the technical/organizational challenges were, and (my favorite part), how we spread the word about PBwiki.
If you want us to speak about anything in particular, just leave a comment here and I’ll make sure we cover it.
“At an all-night SuperHappyDevHouse event in May 2005, David Weekly spent 7 hours coding a simple hosted wiki service from concept to production-available. Within 48 hours of launching, PBwiki was adopted by over a thousand groups as news of the service spread on blogs like LifeHacker and BoingBoing. PBwiki is used by the SDForum Startup SIG, and is extremely easy to use: its name suggests it’s as easy as making a peanut butter sandwich.
Fast-forward 2.5 years and PBwiki:
- Runs 300,000 wikis for millions of montly users.
- Supports 20,000 businesses, including AT&T, Wal-Mart, and 1/3 of the Fortune 500.
- Has 11+ fulltime employees and several part-timers and contractors.
- Has received $2.5 million funding from Ron Conway, Seraph Group and Mohr Davidow.
We’re delighted to host PBwiki’s founders, David Weekly, Ramit Sethi, and Nathan Schmidt.”
