On Tuesday October 27, Weebly invited us and about 40 others to a launch party in Soho. It was an excellent evening, with incredibly delicious Peruvian Ceviche and our second favoruite drink of all time, Whiskey Sour, flowing all night with a great atmosphere. Weebly's CEO David Rusenko and a few other key staff had flown over from San Francisco earlier in the week and were talking to everyone. The evening provided a great opportunity to talk to others about their business, watch a couple of videos/showcases on UK-based eCommerce startups using the Weebly platform (one selling London postcode bangles seemed to make an impression on everyone).
Whatever the future, Weebly instilled confidence and support for everyone using their platform - a throwback to the early days of AirBnB drink evenings in 2010. While AirBnB went corporate, the revelation that the Weebly team stick to Coach when travelling (it's 11+ hours from SFO to LHR) made us realise this company is where we want it to be.
