Longtime Silicon Valley entrepreneur Mike McCue founded Flipboard in early 2010, together with former Apple iPhone engineer Evan Doll. Flipboard is a social magazine for iPad filled with all the things your friends are sharing by applying the timeless principles of print to social media.
Inspired by the beauty and ease of print media, Flipboardʼs mission is to fundamentally improve how people discover, view and share content across their social networks, including Facebook and Twitter. Instead of scrolling down a stream or timeline, Flipboard presents the updates, links, articles and photos that people are sharing like a magazine.
In 1999, Mike founded Tellme Networks, one of the world's largest Internet networks for voice communication. He successfully led the integration of the company’s technology into Microsoft’s infrastructure following its acquisition. Microsoft bought Tellme in 2007 for $800 million.
Before founding Tellme, Mike worked at Netscape as Vice President of Technology. He joined Netscape after their successful acquisition of the first company he founded, Paper Software, a leader in 3-D browser technology. Mike was honored with a Kilby International Award as a Young Innovator for his work bringing 3-D technology to the world through Netscape's Web browser.
