On Simple Poll

  • What's Simple Poll all about?
  • Where did you come up with the idea? It's a simple one, but effective. Was no one else doing it?
  • Do you have any low points building Simple Poll?
  • When did you start charging and how much revenue are you on now (if public)?
  • How do you feel about building on top of Slack? Do you worry they will just build the polling feature?
  • How did you get your first users?
  • You have a huge MAU base. When did you first see it taking off?
