Michael Geer (MG) helped build Badoo to over 70 million users. In July 2010, after 5 years leading a large part of Badoo, he announced he would be moving back to his native New York to start a new endeavor. He now is a Board advisor to several startups in New York, London and LA, promotes the NY Tech scene with his organization Bubble Proof, and has founded a new startup, CauseCart, in the e-commerce/social good space.
Although raised and educated in the states, he started with the Badoo founders working on various projects in the Russian market and then launched Badoo.com and opened a HQ in London, where he spent most of his time setting up new markets for Badoo and supervising the continued success in more established countries.
Mike, or MG as he is known, has stayed quite active around the startup/tech scenes of both London and New York, making sure his teams keep on top of the latest trends and technology for building globally focused products.
