Chris Mirabile is a Co-founder and CEO of the geosocial networking technology, Hotlist.com
Mirabile, a graduate of New York University Stern School of Business, was the youngest entrant to win the NYU Stern Business Plan Competition, from which Hotlist.com was launched. Mirabile and co-founder Gianni Martire went on to raise an $800,000 first round of capital for their venture from Joseph J. Grano, Jr.’s Centurion Holdings, and was accepted into Mayor Michael Bloomberg’s startup incubator program in the SoHo district of New York City.
After more than 700,000 nominations for 25 categories, Chris was a top five finalist in the category of Entrepreneur of The Year at the 2011 Consumer Electronics Show, as part of the 2010 Mashable Awards.
Mirabile’s technology career began at age 15, when he worked as a Web Consultant to the now defunct Silicon Alley startup, InternetCash.com. In 2002, at the age of 18, Mirabile led international expansion efforts for a US-based industrial contracting firm, United States Rebar. The resulting Mumbai, India-based technology subsidiary was recently acquired by an international steel conglomerate.
Immediately prior to Hotlist, Mirabile worked in Private Equity at Putnam Lovell Investment Bank, and as a Consultant to hedge funds both on behalf of Morgan Stanley, as well as independently.
