Company: Social Report
Founded: 2011

What inspired you to start your company?

We wanted to offer marketers a platform to help them manage their customers’ ever increasing appetite for social media.

What has been your proudest moment as a Founder?

Becoming a partner to Facebook and LinkedIn. Attracting interest in large companies such as GoDaddy. Having high profile businesses and individuals using our platform.

What has been your most challenging moment as a Founder?

On the product side: figuring the balance between features, the complexity they bring and maintaining ease of use. On the marketing side: in spite of having the most features and best price, becoming more known.

Favorite quote:

“Beggars can’t be choosers.”
I’m not sure if it applies to the company but it certainly works for me personally — do whatever I must to get where I need to go.
