The Judges:

Marnie Webb is the CEO of Caravan Studios, a division of TechSoup Global, a 501(c)(3) nonprofit. Caravan Studios’ collaborative approach uses a theory of technology intervention to allow communities to respond to the issues they care about most. Caravan Studios recently launched SafeNight, a mobile service that allows domestic violence organizations to crowdsource funding for hotel rooms when shelter is urgently needed. Funded by Microsoft Citizenship, Blue Shield of California Foundation and Vodafone Americas Foundation, SafeNight represents Caravan Studios’ belief that technology can be used to illuminate issues, identify problems, and evoke action. Previously, Webb was co-CEO of TechSoup Global, a 25-year-old organization that distributes more than $600 million in donated technology to NGOs worldwide. In this role, Webb counseled Fortune 500 technology companies, such as Cisco and Microsoft, on philanthropic initiatives that align with their business objectives and recognize the creativity and innovation that nonprofits have to offer.

 

Rick Moss is Managing Director and Founder of Better Ventures which backs entrepreneurs building a better world. He thrives on solving customer development challenges for startups and spends most of his waking hours at the whiteboard. He has 18 years of technology, entrepreneurship and
corporate venture capital experience with Oracle, Sun Microsystems, Computer Sciences Corporation, The Modem Shop (which he founded) and Kleiner Perkins-backed WineShopper.com (acquired by Wine.com). He holds a BA from Trinity College and an MBA from the Amos Tuck School at Dartmouth College. Rick believes passionately that technology should be used to address the
world's most important problems. Rick lives in Oakland, CA with his wife and two kids, is an avid cyclist and a craft beer enthusiast.

 

Mike Maser is the CEO and co-founder of FitStar, Inc., a next-generation digital health company dedicated to helping millions get fit and live healthier lives at home, or on the go. Mike leads the mission in harnessing breakthrough mobile technology to make fitness more appealing and accessible to a worldwide audience. Backed by Floodgate Fund, Google Ventures, Trinity Ventures, and other prominent investors in the tech, mobile and sports industries, FitStar is a leader in the emerging digital fitness space. Mike has spent 17 years building businesses in and around the mobile, tech and digital media sectors as a co-founder, senior executive and advisor to several companies and charitable organizations. Prior to co-founding FitStar in 2012, Mike served in leadership roles at AOL, Digg, Electronic Arts and Intel. Based in San Francisco, Mike lives and breathes his mission to promote healthy living. He keeps physical activity at the forefront of his daily routine, and enjoys mountain biking, running, and of course training regularly with FitStar.

 

Joe Fitzgerald Rodriguez is a San Francisco native, born and bred. Joe is a Bay Guardian staff writer and videographer covering housing, education, and culture. He previously wrote as a freelancer for the Agence France Press, San Francisco Examiner, El Tecolote and other San Francisco publications. For Joe, writing and reporting is an important and necessary calling that helps to address national and local issues. Joe thinks Nintendo is awesome and uses iOS, and If he squint real hard, he can kind of understand some light CSS. Check out Joe's article about judging the hackathon here http://bit.ly/judginghackers
