At age 28, Alexander Haro has already accomplished a lot – including being one of Forbes Magazine’s 30 Under 30 in Consumer Technology for 2015. This recognition was given to him because of his contribution to the development of the location-based family networking application called Life360. Along with Chris Hulls, Haro co-founded the company back in 2008 and was initially funded by a grant they won from Google’s Android Developer Challenge. Since then, the company has received $20 million in funding from venture capitalists and companies such as Google and Facebook. The idea behind Life360 was to connect families in the digital age. Using the application, family members can share their locations, participate in group chat and create circles to distinguish different sets of members of the user’s network.
Haro served as CTO of the company until June 2014 where he took on the President’s role. Before Life360, Haro got his degree in Computer Science at Pomona College.
