We did Y Combinator in Winter 2008 as BaseShield, a secure, virtualized app store for Windows. We raised a tiny angel round afterwards.

As we were running out of money last fall we decided to kill the complicated BaseShield and launch Ninite (a simple, small feature we planned to have in BaseShield) and charge for it. We kept the old company and investors since we want to provide a return, but Ninite’s been basically bootstrapped.
