Bootstrapped iPad App One Million Users Strong, Branchfire's CEO, Ravi Bhatt Tells the Story


This week's featured interview is with Ravi Bhatt, Co-Founder and CEO of Branchfire.

Branchfire is responsible for a little used (only a million+ users) iPad App callediAnnotate. iAnnotate allows you to read, markup and share documents on the go.  Its used widely in education but also adopted by Hollywood for reading and editing scripts among actors, pro sports teams sharing out playbooks and all sorts of other smart folks.  Ravi also makes a real solid effort to compare the Chicago start-up scene to a Lemonade Stand (it mostly works ;) and thinks more people in town should hear that their ideas are just plain bad (not to be mean - just to help us build better stuff).
