Co-founder of Homestead and Curious.com, author of The Daily Curio blog, and lover of lifelong learning.
Justin dropped out of graduate school to start his first company (KartoffelSoft, based on a children’s programming language he created) and is still a few credits short of being accepted by his family. He co-founded Homestead in 1997, which became the world’s largest small business website platform. Intuit acquired Homestead in 2007, and Justin then served as GM of Intuit’s Grow Your Business Division and the company’s Chief Growth Officer until 2010. In May 2013, Justin helped start Curious.com and is currently the company's CEO. Besides his extremely important CEO duties, he writes the Daily Curio blog, where he posts a curious fact every day of the year.
Justin also coaches (and invests in) entrepreneurs who are desperate to change the world. He chairs the Homestead Foundation and Kitch Family Foundation, which both support organizations focused on educational, environmental, and poverty issues. Justin grew up in Wichita, Kansas and holds a BS from Stanford University in Values, Technology, Science and Society.
Besides loving to tickle-torture his three kids, Justin enjoys playing the guitar and basketball, mountain biking, and coaching youth sports. You can follow Justin on his blog, "CEO Unplugged," or on Twitter at @ceounplugged.
