Hi, I’m Josh Fraser. I’m a entrepreneur and have founded three companies so far. I fully expect to spend the rest of my life working to make the internet better.
I founded Torbit, which offered web performance analytics and optimization before being acquired by Walmart Labs.
Before Torbit, I co-founded EventVue, which provided tools to help conference organizers build community and market their events online. EventVue was part of the TechStars startup incubator in Boulder in 2007.
I graduated from Clemson University in 2006 with a BS in computer science. I started this blog as a way to share what I am learning with the rest of the world. I’m a huge believer in open-source software and have contributed to several projects like PubSubHubbub.
I’m a big believer in the power of mentorship. I’ve been fortunate to be surrounded by many wise mentors and am honored to mentor others through two of the TechStars programs — TechStars Cloud in San Antonio, TX and The Next Big Thing in Greenville, SC (which is part of the TechStars network).
I grew up in Scotland and have dual citizenship. I love rock climbing and spending time outdoors. I currently live in San Francisco, CA and plan to see the world from outer space one day.
