CEO of Foursquare. I’ve been working on “building things that make ciYes easier to use” since I was in grad school at NYU. My grad school thesis turned into my ﬁrst company, Dodgeball, which we sold to Google in 2005. For the past six years, we've been building Foursquare and Swarm, which are now used by more than 50M people around the world every month!
great insights. Was there anything in parYcular that moYvated you to build out a contextual awareness engine? Dennis Crowley— CEO, Foursquare @neiljain83 This is what we started the company to do... like in 2009. This sentence below is copy and pasted out of a pitch deck from YEARS ago. This is what we are building. "Someday, hundreds of millions of people will carry so?ware in their pockets that knows when their friends are nearby and when places & experiences they’ll love are right around the corner. Foursquare will power these experiences." hjp://www.producthunt.com/live/dennis-crowley
