Can you and your team make a living with your API? In this episode, we talk to two guests who have done it - multiple times, in fact. Alex Hillman and Chris Nagele from Wildbit talk to the Mash This team about their experiences starting and growing both Postmark and Beanstalk, two very popular web-based services. They also introduce us to Thinkstrapped, their new API startup mentoring community. We talk about the pros and cons of bootstrapping vs. VC funding, creating a sustainable business model, identifying what your customers need, building a team, and more.
