Description

Mr. Evan Williams is a Co-Founder and serves as Chief Executive Officer of Medium Corporation. In January 1999 he co-founded Pyra Labs, which created the blog-publishing service Blogger (and coined the term "blogger"), which was acquired by Google in early 2003. He then co-founded Odeo and Obvious Corp, which gave birth to Twitter in 2006. He was Twitter's co-founder, lead investor, and former CEO. Twitter has become one of the most used sites on the Internet, with over 280 million people logging into the service each month and sending half a billion tweets each day. In 2011, along with Obvious Ventures advisors, Biz Stone, and Jason Goldman, he restarted Obvious Corp and began a mix of start-up investing and incubation. He has invested in Branch (acquired by Facebook), mobile life coach service Lift, plant-based protein maker Beyond Meat, and household device maker Nest (acquired by Google). He is also an Angel Investor.
