I secretly created Bang With Friends, took over SXSW 2013, grew BWF to over 1M users, got booted from Apple's App Store, had my identity outed by the media, raised $1M, got sued, and relaunched as DOWN. Ask Me (Almost) Anything!
UPDATE: We're at the end of our regularly scheduled session (4PM PST / 7PM EST), but I'll check back in later tonight / tomorrow in case there are more questions!
I’m Colin Hodge, cofounder and CEO of Bang With Friends (http://www.reddit.com/r/all/search?q=bangwithfriends), now CEO of DOWN (http://downapp.com).
I had 3 less successful startups before BWF, then created this beautiful accident in January this year. Since then, I helped people get laid and get loved around the world!
Now, in the spirit of Holidays, I’m here to spike your eggnog, get your stocking stuffed, twirl your candy cane, and get down that chimney :)
In the past year my company has been featured on Gawker (http://valleywag.gawker.com/meet-the-28-year-old-ceo-of-bang-with-friends-509602077), the Colbert Report (http://www.colbertnation.com/the-colbert-report-videos/423653/february-07-2013/-bang-with-friends--app), Fast Company (http://www.fastcodesign.com/1671768/bang-with-friends-the-beginning-of-a-sexual-revolution-on-facebook) and Techcrunch (http://techcrunch.com/2013/10/25/bang-with-friends-down/), plus tons more (http://downapp.com/press).
I’ve talked about startups, sex, love, dating and more:(http://www.businessinsider.com/bang-with-friends-colin-hodge-interview-2013-6) (http://www.businessinsider.com/bang-with-friends-is-down-2013-10) (http://www.businessinsider.com/bang-with-friends-colin-hodge-on-apple-2013-10) (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=3ZAVAtrgzuM)
Note: most topics are fair game, but there are a few things that I am not able to discuss, such as the agreement with Zynga.
