Quotes

"We'll grow as fast as possible as long as we're at break even," Wainer says. "The moment we start to go into the red, we would take a step back. We just love running profitable companies. That's a contrast with New York. We're real. We're down to earth. We don't run a fantasy revenue model."
"We're about helping people create their own memes," noted co-founder Max Woon. "Skits get posted, get remixed and commented on by the community -- in fact, we've had one million remixes since we launched! SKIT! is about creativity and having more fun with your photos by making the fun situations."
"I used to check it a couple of times a day, but now it's my backup to the launch ticker, which streamlines it by rewriting the headlines, doing research and de-duping" Launch Ticker and Inside.com founder Jason Calacanis tells Business Insider via email. "Generally you don't need 15 links about one story."
"We're at a turning point in terms of an organization, going from being a startup to figuring out how to make a sustainable impact" Yagan said. She added that coaching eight companies a year may not be the only way the organization helps social entrepreneurs in the future
