Marco Zappacosta ’07CC and his co-founders started Thumbtack.com while working together in a student advocacy group in Washington D.C.. Enjoying the challenge of building something from nothing, they set out to do it again, but this time as a technology company.
Thumbtack’s mission is to ease the hiring of professional services while at the same time empowering independent professionals to grow their businesses. Thumbtack helps more than 200,000 customers every month and generates over $150M a year for our small businesses. The company has raised almost $19M from Sequoia Capital.
