Chris Campbell, Kevin Hale and Ryan Campbell founded Infinity Box Inc. on the belief that forms were the starting point for building anything useful on the web. The problem they saw was that one of the most efficient and used interfaces for collecting data, wasn’t very efficient to create.
After presenting their solution to Y Combinator, a venture firm that specializes in funding very early stage startups, they received the initial seed funding needed to work on their idea full time and get their project off the ground.
After 6 months of development, the three founders built Wufoo, a web application that removed the inefficiency and tediousness out of the form building process. Wufoo reduced what used to take days (if not weeks) by trained professionals into something that could be done by anyone in minutes.
Infinity Box is the second company created by the three founders. Their first, Particletree Inc, is responsible for the web development blog, Particletree, and the monthly PDF web development magazine, Treehouse.
