Matt Galligan is Co-founder & CEO of Picks & Shovels. Midwesterner, product designer, coffee snob, craft beer lover, GIF enthusiast. Prev. Circa, SimpleGeo, Socialthing.
I'm a serial entrepreneur living in San Francisco, passionate about building world-class products with great design and user experience. Previously I co-founded three companies: Circa, SimpleGeo, and Socialthing. While every product I've been a part of has been very different than the last, one over arching theme remains: I love to solve complex problems in simple and elegant ways.
Beyond the startups I've been a co-founder of, I've had the privilege and pleasure of mentoring and advising a number of startups such as PixelPress, ScoreStream, and a number of others that have come out of TechStars (my company Socialthing was in the 2007 program).
