Expa is a startup studio, a company that creates new companies. We partner with founders to create new products and services, and build teams to scale them as independent companies. We focus on just a few projects at a time, creating new businesses that will improve people’s lives. Learn more →
Expa works with proven founders to develop and launch new companies. After 10 years designing and building consumer services, the Expa team has identified many techniques that help create successful companies. We help companies avoid common pitfalls in early-stage ventures, and actively remove roadblocks along the way. We’re not an “incubator”, and not a VC. We are hands-on co-founders that care about the details. The Expa team spends significant time on every company we work with.
Expa usually founds new companies based on our own ideas, but we occasionally collaborate with founders of early-stage companies whose missions we believe in. In such cases we become hands-on partners to a company, to help craft the brand, build the prototype and iterate towards product-market-fit. Expa specializes in product strategy, system design and user experience.
Expa was founded by Garrett Camp, co-founder of Uber and StumbleUpon, to apply his lessons learned creating successful startups. Joined by Hooman Radfar (founder of AddThis), Naveen Selvadurai (co-founder of Foursquare) and 20 talented in-house experts in SF & NYC, the Expa team actively guides companies. We have done this before, founding 4 industry-defining startups that have collectively reached over 100 million registered users. And now we’re applying what we’ve learned to create the next generation of startups.
If you are passionate about solving the world’s problems through innovative technology, Expa is the place for you. We have some positions at Expa itself, which provides Shared Services to our network of companies, as well as many roles within a specific company we’ve helped start.

Expa is a startup studio, a company that creates new companies. We have lots of different kinds of tech op’s challenges as our portfolio companies need different kinds of support.
One ongoing challenge is how to store and extract data in a way that is efficient and automated. To sum it up, our portfolio works with disparate data stores, and more specifically than that, we don’t dictate how our portfolio companies store their data, so they are free to choose whatever product makes sense for their team. As an example, one of our portfolio companies was primarily client focused, with iOS engineers, and wasn’t ready to invest in a custom backend. That’s where Parse fits in.
