Garrett began his career in 2002, co-founding StumbleUpon while in grad school. After self-funding for 4 years, Garrett moved to San Francisco in 2006 and raised seed funding for StumbleUpon from investors such as Ram Shriram, Josh Kopelman and Mitch Kapor. A year later StumbleUpon was acquired by eBay for $75m. In 2009 Garrett led StumbleUpon’s spin-out, and spent 3 years growing SU to over 25m users and profitability before stepping down in 2012 to focus on new projects. Uber is Garrett’s second startup, which he co-founded in 2009 with Travis Kalanick. Garrett designed and prototyped the system, and by June 2010 service began in San Francisco. Uber has since raised over $300m in venture capital and expanded to 50 cities worldwide. Expa is Garrett’s new focus for 2013 onward, integrating his 10 years of startup experience into an efficient system for developing new companies.
