Alan Schaaf is founder and CEO of Imgur, the Internet's home for insanely entertaining visual stories created and curated by millions of people around the world. Launched in 2009 when Schaaf was still an undergraduate at Ohio University, Imgur has organically amassed a community of 150 million monthly active users and receives over 60 billion views of its images around the Internet each month. Imgur currently ranks among the top 50 sites in the world, and was recently called "the next big social network" by CNBC.

Under Schaaf's leadership, the company was proudly bootstrapped and profitable for five years, scaling organically to millions of users before finally receiving $40 million in investment from Andreessen Horowitz in 2014. He brings over a decade of experience to Imgur as a professional coder with a focus on crafting beautiful user experiences. Schaaf has previously been a speaker at TEDxWellington, AWS re:Invent, and is a strong advocate in the battle for a free and open Internet.
