Kyle Watkins, Co-FounderFounder Emeritus — Kyle Watkins  (Harvard Business School, MBA class of 2013)

Kyle applied to business school only one year after graduating college, making him among the youngest applicants admitted to Harvard Business School. However, during his time in college he also worked for nearly two years as a paid finance staffer for President Obama’s 2008 campaign, and he went on to work in the White House on the National Economic Council and in the Office of Management and Budget before matriculating to business school.

Leveraging his background as a journalism minor to write compelling essays, he worked for months to shape his personal brand. Coupled with a 770 on the GMAT and a strong undergraduate GPA, his narrative propelled him to admission at HBS, his first-choice school and the only program to which he applied.

After graduating HBS, he joined the Chicago-based startup Networked Insights, and was later recruited by Shiftgig, another Chicago-area startup.
