11 Notes

This will be one of the biggest years for our company ever. We have some pretty aggressive projections, and we’ve been beating those projections month after month.
HootSuite co-founder Ryan Holmes • Discussing his social media company, which recently closed out a $50 million investment round and may be on the way to a half-billion valuation — which is extremely impressive for what’s effectively a social media management company. It’s easy to see why, though: The company manages to hit the low end of the market (96 percent of its users pay nothing) and the high end (some companies pay $100,000 a month for services) pretty effectively. While Holmes has had many offers to sell, he’d prefer to keep his business independent and perhaps even give Vancouver, where it’s based, a tech sector or its own. Pretty cool. (via shortformblog)
