Startup Grind Denver Welcomes Christian Vanek (CEO/Co-Founder SurveyGizmo)

You MUST register for this event if you want to attend:

The December StartupGrind event will feature CEO and Founder Christian Vanek of

SurveyGizmo was founded in 2006, when Christian Vanek was working as a consultant.

"I noticed that my clients weren't satisfied with the survey software out there," Vanek says. "I knew what they wanted and what they didn't like. We didn't know the company would be such a success."

Vanek and one partner started with one server, which was $79 a month. He worked for no pay, and continued his contract business to bring home a paycheck.

"One of the things I tell young entrepreneurs is to stick to their dreams," he says. "Don't let anything stop you. Finding venture capital isn't always necessary."

What started small has grown into a company with more than $3 million in annual sales. The SurveyGizmo Web application has more than 150,000 users, with customers in more than 60 countries.

Inc. magazine recently ranked SurveyGizmo the 13th fastest-growing private software company in the United States.
