After last nights news about the €6.5 million investment in eBuddy we decided to sneak our way into the eBuddy offices this morning to see if we could find the money. We did find SOME money AND Onno Bakker (co-founder together with Jan-Joost Rueb and Paulo Taylor) of eBuddy. He told us a little bit about the investment and how they celebrated and how that felt the next day.

Check the shocked faces on the employees as we rush in and shout “Where is the money!”.

I’m glad we didn’t get shot OR arrested. Maybe we should make a series of unexpected interviews like this. Check out our earlier Michael Arrington Heist.
