The magic happened during McClure’s “Geeks on a Plane“ (#goap) visit to Zagreb last week. When he heard the WhoAPI pitch, he described it as “twilio for whois data”, which must have been a good sign, since Twilio is a successful 500 Startups company. Later, McClure tweeted the actual funding announcement, also sharing his excitement about meeting the Croatian president in the same tweet. This man is an efficient tweeter.
I asked Goran Duškić (@duskic), WhoAPI co-founder, what he was most excited about before going to Silicon Valley for the 500 Startups program. Here is what he had to say:
“It’s really difficult to single out one thing! We are looking forward to absolutely everything, and we are all really excited! I mean, take 500 startups mentoring for example — they have over 100 mentors from Google, Youtube, Zynga, not to mention we plan to visit those companies! Their knowledge, experience and contacts will be priceless!”
Congratulations and we look forward to hearing stories. For earlier Eastist coverage of WhoAPI click here.
