Tech Startup Podcast: Brian Bauer of Kurfuffl

Podcast #19 of 50, this conversation with Brian Bauer was both funny and educational. I wondered how many times we could say his company name. Indeed--it came up frequently.

Throughout our conversation, we also touched on several other key areas like how Kurfuffl is using branding to create and expand its marketing voice online. We also talked about starting up in Chicago, challenges that Brian is facing and releasing an Android mobile app before iPhone.
