Greg first told us about his need for creating things, building things and expressing himself through products. We then talked about his studdies and how he ended up working for Mozilla. Greg told us a lot about what he learned there, what he liked and why he decided to move on. He then told us about the consulting part of his career and how this all was the perfect build up to create his company ReadMe. We then discussed ReadMe itself, the 5 years when the company was profitable and bootstrapped and the (very) recent Series-A funding it received. We finally went full circle and finished on a note about creativity.
After launching dozens of companies and side-projects over the last 10 years, Greg realized how difficult API’s were to understand and use for most people. That’s why, as Founder of ReadMe, he is making it easy for millions of people and over 17 hundred companies, including Lyft and Trello, to build and use awesome products with API’s.
