Ep 34: Reconnecting Individuals and Gaining Knowledge: How Spokeo is Creating Easier User Interfaces While Giving Back


– Profits with Purpose with Marc Freedman and Yanik Silver Episode 034 with Harrison Tang

Harrison Tang is the co-founder and CEO president of Spokeo, which he created in 2006 with a group of four friends from Stanford University. They envisioned a new way to approach social networks by providing an easy user interface to keep track of friends’ activities online. Since then, Spokeo has grown into a leading people search engine, reconnecting individuals to others all across the United States

Spokeo and Harrison have both received multiple accolades acknowledging the company’s growth and success. Harrison was a recipient of the prestigious Ernst & Young Entrepreneur of the Year Award in Los Angeles in 2015, and the company has been featured on a variety of “fastest growing” and “most promising” lists including “Los Angeles Business Journal,” “Forbes,” “Deloitte” and “Inc.”
