As a startup without the time nor resources to roll our own stack, we went with the Mapbox tile server and the OpenLayers JS library for displaying to the end user.

Since maps are a big part of our project, and we keep a decent amount of Geo data, we'll have to set up our own servers once it becomes cheaper than paying Mapbox in terms of views.

It's surprisingly easy with the OpenStreetMap data and Mapnik to display nice maps (at least at the POC stage ;-).

We use GeoDjango with PostGIS to store and process our geospatial data.
