The Startup Success Podcast

This week Bob and Patrick talk with Mike Beaty, CEO of RedCritter. RedCritter turns Microsoft Outlook into a platform for Silverlight applications tapping web-based functionality: from YouTube and Google Docs to Basecamp to a company’s web app to whatever you want to add. RedCritter is free to Outlook users.

Mike, Patrick and Bob discuss the economics of building a platform, getting new software into the enterprise, addressing the system integrator market, providing IT enterprise with what they need and more.

And a quick word about our new sponsor, InfluAds. If your startup’s market is other startups, web developers and designers why not reach out to them through with a small, tasteful ad at sites they already read? That’s how InfulAds works. Act now, mention “SSP” and save 20% on you first ad buy. InfluAds.com – ads for startups by a Startup.

We’d also like to thank Microsoft WebsiteSpark for being our first official show sponsor! Microsoft WebsiteSpark and StartupToDo.com have free Microsoft software for designers and a six month scholarship to StartupToDo.com you may be interested in. For details and how to apply, visit http://startuptodo.com/websitespark/.
