The Quid Mission
To make sense of complex networks so that our users can make truly informed decisions.
The Quid Team
Having met in San Francisco through U.K. and Oxford University connections, founders Bob Goodson and Sean Gourley have worked together since 2008 to create Quid's novel synthesis of data acquisition, analysis, and application.
Bob Goodson, Quid CEO, was among the first employees of Yelp as product manager and later head of sales, building the team that signed the first thousand accounts. Yelp has 25 million monthly users, was valued in early 2010 at $500 million, and is an early example of Bob's experience with innovative data acquisition techniques. Bob studied Medieval Literature and Philosophy at University College, Oxford and while there founded the Oxford Entrepreneurs Society, which became the model for universities throughout the U.K. His undergraduate degree in English Literature and Philosophy is from the University of East Anglia in England.
Sean Gourley, Quid CTO, did research into the mathematics of war for his PhD thesis at Balliol College, Oxford.
