Aaron Krane

Aaron Krane founded Hitpost (acquired by Yahoo), the leading app developer for sports fans. Aaron was Hitpost’s CEO and Designer, during which time the company raised venture capital from top investors including Khosla Ventures and Floodgate, gained millions of users, and sold to Yahoo in 2013. Prior to that, Aaron worked for the founders of Paypal at Slide (acquired by Google), and prior to that, Aaron worked at a blog search engine called Technorati. There, he launched a daily webshow called “Buzz TV,” which made him a micro-celebrity for 40 days.

Aaron was reared in the hills of Silicon Valley, and in 8th grade, was elected student body president in a massive upset over the teacher’s pet (not literally a pet).
