The Future of FormSpring.me + Office Photos


By Ivan Brezak Brkan, January 11, 2012

We’ve already written about FormSpring.me, a free question and answer services that is getting more and more browsers, users and most importantly: questions. At almost 28.000.000 users, FormSpring is using its $14 million in funding from angel investors like Kevin Rose and Dave Morin as well as, it seems their biggest investor, Baseline Ventures which participated both in the angel and A round of financing.

Business Insider’s Boonsri Dickinson caught up with FormSpring’s CEO Ade Olonoh, who started the project at his old job with FormStack. FormSpring reached a million registered users in just a month, when he decided that the project needs to become a company and moved it to San Francisco.

In the short interview, Olonoh describes:

  • What FormSpring.me actually is;
  • The problems with kids being trolls on the service and how they fixed it;
  • How they surface the best content with “smiles”;
  • What they’re planning for 2012.

Watch the interview from Business Insider:

FormSpring’s offices in San Francisco are located in SOMA, the SF Examiner and a local bank were located before the fast growing startup moved in. Take a look at what Dickinson found at the offices:

Seems that Q&A is on the up and up. What do you think about FormSpring’s offices – would you work there?
