Question

Was Zapier really founded at a hackathon? At the time, could you imagine it becoming what it is today?

Yep. Bryan and I had chatted a little about the idea on iChat a few weeks before. But the first version was built at a Startup Weekend. I don't think any of us had any idea that Zapier could be what it is today.

iChat ... now that brings back memories!

Were you already using any other automation tools at the time?

Not really. I was using Marketo at work which is marketing automation. The idea of general automation seemed like a great extension of that though.

How do you find new software to use?

The market is bursting with new software, a lot of new products are launching every day. A few months ago I posted on Capiche about my SaaS idea. Your feedback is priceless and helped us to change...
