Meet us at one of the coolest web conferences in Europe: How to Web 2012


by 123FormBuilder

How to WebThe 123FormBuilder platform as you know it today became a project in the autumn of 2010, at How to Web, the most important conference on web business and technology in South-Eastern Europe, which takes place yearly. In 2011, the How to Web staff used online surveys built with the remastered 123FormBuilder engine to collect feeback from participants at the conference. Enjoy a case study on their experience and the short recollection of facts below.

123FormBuilder was founded as we were searching for a more efficient way of building contact forms for our various web projects. Realizing how much time a form builder could save, we started developing one. 123FormBuilder was launched in 2008. It was gaining traction, but quite at a slow pace. We lacked business expertise and had to learn everything the hard way.

In 2010, at Radu Ticiu’s (one of our mentors) suggestion, we attended the How to Web conference. To our delight, many participants had interesting stories of their own and most of the speakers helped us make better sense of the web world. We gave a presentation of our business idea and received valuable feedback from John Bradford and Stewart Townsend. It became obvious to us that 123FormBuilder could progress into so much more than it was at the time.

It was also at How to Web where we met our angel investor – Adrian Gheara. Our paths had crossed before, but this was the perfect environment to discuss the perspectives of 123FormBuilder. By the end of 2010, our partnership with Adrian was sealed. The financial investment was only part of the support we received. We got business and technical know-how that took 123FormBuilder to a whole new level.

Two years later, 123FormBuilder is the sixth form builder on the worldwide market. Thanks, How to Web, and see you in November!
