Craig Ulliott started the Facebook app Where I’ve Been as a side project while he was working as a freelance web developer. Within a few days, usage of Where I’ve Been exploded, and within a month, Craig had to figure out how to support his growing user base of around a million users. A problem most of us would like to have.
Today, Where I’ve Been is approaching ten million maps created, is one of the most popular travel apps on Facebook, and is partnering with leading companies in the travel industry. In 2008 the company raised $1 million in angel funding and then took another $750K from Lightbank (the team behind Groupon) in early 2010. I interviewed Craig to learn how he built a wildly successful Facebook app and how starting Where I’ve Been is the “best mistake” Craig ever made.
