Wade is the CEO and co-founder of Zapier (rhymes with happier), a workflow automation tool used by over 1.5 million people to connect the work apps they use every day.
Wade studied business and engineering at University of Missouri-Columbia before Zapier raised $1 million seed funding in 2012 after graduating from Y-Combinator where he was told his idea was nice – but not big enough. Zapier is a fully remote, profitable business employing over 350 people across 35 countries – they’re just humans who think computers should do more work. Zapier has taken no further investment though some original investors, though not the founders, recently sold their holdings at a reported $5billion valuation.
