Scott Rafer runs Lumatic, which is building a new kind of city map for pedestrians, cyclists, and transit riders because they believe that the world’s cities should be easier to love. Rafer is also co-founder and director at Mashery (recently acquired by Intel) and Delivr.
Lumatic was preceded by Lookery, one of the first ad networks on Facebook, portions of which were sold to Adknowledge in 2008; and MyBlogLog, a social network of bloggers, which Yahoo! acquired in 2007. Rafer is on the BoD at Nanigans, ShopPad, and Zemanta.
That’s the start of a long list. Rafer has been helping Internet publishers and users develop the ‘next big thing’ since 1995.
Before 1995, Rafer headed-up the Internet products group at Kodak Hollywood, worked in investment banking at Needham & Company, and graduated from the management of technology program at the University of Pennsylvania.
