Event Details

Adam Tratt, Co founder, CEO Haiku Deck

We are lucky to be able to get Adam for an evening at Startup Grind Seattle. He has been fortunate enough and talented enough to have recently raised a $3 million round from Madrona, Founders Co-op and others. His company Haiku Deck has done some major pivots along the way. He has some great stories to share with us on September 25th about his journey with his company. Tratt began his career as a Product Manager for Microsoft Office. His crowning achievement was teaching Bill Gates to create a web page using Microsoft Word. Gates thought the demo sounded “salesy,” which Tratt took as a compliment. After marketing stints at a few dotcoms in the eCommerce sector, Tratt became the first marketing hire at board game startup, Cranium. Cranium published more than 100 different board games, books, and toys, selling millions of units worldwide and winning multiple Toy of the Year awards. Tratt went on to serve as SVP of Business Development for Mr. Youth, Mashable’s 2010 Social Media Agency of the Year before being accepted to Seattle Techstars in 2010, which led to his current role. A life-long presenter, Tratt got his BA in International Relations from Tufts University. Follow him on Twitter @adamtr
