Our products are used by over 70 million people yearly. Our flagship product, EasyBib.com, is a popular research management and writing tool. Our newest product, GetCourse, allows marketers and trainers to add questions and user tracking to any presentation or document. My friend and I have been bootstrapping our company since 2001, when we started our first product EasyBib as high school students. I graduated from Northwestern in 2006, and worked as an investment banker site at Lehman Brothers until early 2008 (before their demise). At that point, I started working on Imagine Easy full time building and acquiring educational and media products.
