Mission

We started Crowd Supply based on a single guiding principle: to be the product development platform we'd want to use for our own projects. As engineers and designers, we know the challenges of going from idea to reality, and all the important details in between. We built Crowd Supply from the ground up to handle as many of those details as possible so you can focus on your vision. Find out how Crowd Supply can help you.

Team

Josh Lifton

Josh received his doctorate from the MIT Media Lab and holds a BA in physics and mathematics from Swarthmore College, which is to say he's devoted a significant amount of his time learning how to make things that blink. As head of Crowd Supply's project efforts, he is helping others do the same. Prior to Crowd Supply, Josh worked in a variety of technology settings, from instrumenting thousands of audience members with custom wearable computers for a Cirque du Soleil performance to, most recently, serving as head of engineering at Puppet Labs.

Scott Torborg

Graduating from MIT in 2007, Scott dabbled in hardware engineering for several years, before falling into the world of e-commerce as the CEO of Cart Logic, Inc. Achieving sporadic internet notoriety through projects such as the MIT Disco Dance Floor and TacoCopter, he enjoys pyrotechnics, baking cakes, and long walks on the beach.

Lou Doctor

Lou has a BSEE from Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute and over thirty years of experience as an entrepreneur, senior executive, and investment banker. Over the span of his career, he has acted as the financial advisor on over 25 M&A transactions totaling over $500M and founded ten technology and e-commerce companies that will do combined total of over $40M in annual sales this year. In his spare time, he enjoys cycling and complaining about politics.

Eric Strom

Eric attended Washington State University where in 2008 he received his B.S. in International Business. The subsequent four years he worked in financial services in London and Portland, OR. Eric's interest in new products and technologies brought him to Crowd Supply, where he is assisting in product curation and business development. In his spare time he can be found with headphones on, or in the great outdoors enjoying all the Pacific Northwest has to offer.

Jennifer Lankford

Jennifer is a marketing and communications professional with over 60 tech companies under her belt, from consumer gadgets and gaming platforms to developer tools and the cloud. Before Crowd Supply, she led communications for Orchestrate, a NoSQL database service acquired by CenturyLink Cloud. She founded her own tech startup PR consultancy in early 2013, and before that, served as VP for theMIX agency. She holds a BA in Modern Literature from UC Santa Cruz.
