On Monday, Mashable readers met the team at Vungle, the in-app video advertising startup we're following in our new series, Behind the Launch. The founders have bootstrapped Vungle through the AngelPad accelerator and recently received $2 million in funding. With media attention and top-notch investors, Vungle's team is well on its way to a June 2012 launch. But there's one problem — they have no users.
