“Getting Real helped us build ProofHQ on a $15,000 budget and bootstrap to breakeven”
“We started work on ProofHQ in Jan 2007 and I bought Getting Real on 15 March 2007.  Although I had founded a tech start-up before, Getting Real summed up exactly how I wanted ProofHQ to be run.  Frankly, it was an inspiration then, and continues to be today…We launched in May 2008.  By November 2008 our revenues exceeded operating costs for the first time and we just broke even.  All this has been possible by keeping the team small, keeping our costs low and moving fast.”
