20 best startups of 2011
Founders: Jonathan Marcus, David Marcus, and Jack Zerby Funding: $3 Million+ in funding led by Alex Zubillaga of the Rhone Group. Additional angel investors include Dave Morin of Path, David Tisch of TechStars, Vimeo founder Jake Lodwick, Joey Levin of Mindspark, and John Foley of Barnes & Noble. What it is: An incredibly easy to use e-commerce site. Goodsie makes setting up stores very similar to setting up Wordpress blogs. Users choose from multiple layout options, color pallets, background patterns, and typography without ever having to muck in code. After writing about Goodsie's launch, I tried the service myself.
