Coffee Cup is an amazingly clever company founded and run by an amazingly clever and creative individual!
Nick is a wonderful guy, and CofeeCup has changed the world!
Watching Nick and his team grow has been a privelege. Nick is always at the forefront of the internet marketing business. Nicks' no nonsense relentless pursuit of new customers is amazing. Always trying something new. Always looking to see what can be done to increase marketshare. Not afraid of making choices that may be against the grain.
Nick was able to take a solid product and create a wider range of complimentary offerings. In turn providing the Webmaster community with a dependable offering and alternative to the mainstream.
CoffeeCup is an innovative software company that has continued to push the envelope with new hosted software products. Nick is hands down one of the best marketers I have ever met. He has killer marketing instincts.
I'm been using Nick's/CoffeeCup products for about 7 years and have been extremely pleased. My company now sells his products with great success. I'm very happy that I have had the opportunity to work with Nick.
Usability is key with CoffeeCup, no matter how tight a timeframe they have. In a short amount of time they delivered a product that was eye catching and worked to specs, and were very responsive to changes throughtout the development process.
Nick had a vision. He also had the mind and the tools to turn it into reality. I worked with CoffeeCup software as a consultant and created several softwares for them in 1998-2000. It was a rewarding experience and working with people who know where they are going is always a most pleasant experience as well.
Few people are as passionate as Nick about collaboration and entrepreneurship. Even fewer people take action about it. Nick is a role model in both. He has been a incredible mentor, advisor, and friend. And I admire him as a successful entrepreneur.
Nick is an excellent resource for us at TechStars. He is always tremendously helpful to our companies, and has helped us build an incredible and meaningful relationship between our organizations.
Nick Longo is one of the people that when you first meet, you don't realize how far ahead and honestly big their vision is; in addition he welcomes as many people (community especially) along for the ride. I have known Nick since the beginning of Geekdom started (before it was even a business), it was one of the greatest and still marks a transition in San Antonio's tech startup economy to bring like minded individuals together.
I look forward to growing my business at Geekdom over the years to come. As we all likely move and flex from new startups to being parts of others, Geekdom has inspired a new way of startup ecosystem that no one thought possible in San Antonio; without the rainmaker we wouldn't be here.
