It’s unfortunate, but true: Since venture capital funding rounds often provide a straightforward time to meet and report on growing tech companies, awesome bootstrapped startups sometimes slip under our radar here at TechCrunch.
Up until now, that’s been the case with NerdWallet, the personal money management and advisory platform that has bootstrapped its way to profitability, a full-time staff of more than 30, and a sweet office in downtown San Francisco — all since 2009, and without a dime of VC funding.
So hopefully we made up for some lost time with this latest episode of TechCrunch Cribs. Co-founder and COO Jacob Gibson led the way for our long-overdue look around NerdWallet HQ, and we really liked what we found: A beautifully designed space furnished with pyramids of Diet Coke, designated “Nerding” rooms, a conference room/DJ booth, a few very well-dressed canine friends, a front-and-center set of monkey bars perfect for impromptu pull-up competitions, and much more.
