Selected answers from Webflow's original YC application for the S13 Batch

How long have the founders known one another and how did you meet? Have any of the founders not met in person?

Sergie and Vlad are brothers, and have worked on many projects together. Bryant and Vlad were the first two engineers on Intuit Brainstorm, and worked together for 3 years.

What is your company going to make? Please describe your product and what it does or will do.

Webflow is a visual interface for creating responsive websites, and a platform that makes it easy to manage and host them. It provides Photoshop-like design tools natively in the browser, allowing web designers to craft professional websites without having to learn how to code. It automatically handles a lot of tedious and repetitive tasks usually associated with web design (such as writing code, domain registration, content management, cross-browser compatibility, hosting, compression, content delivery networks, search engine optimization, etc).

How long have each of you been working on this? How much of that has been full-time? Please explain.

We have been building the current product full-time since October 2012, and have a little over 25K lines of code (17K JavaScript, 4K LESS, 4K Jade templates). Since Webflow has a very rich UI, we also have more than a gigabyte of original design assets.
