The co-founder of FullContact, a Denver-based technology company, will be the next e2e Wyoming speaker in Laramie Wednesday, June 14.

Travis Todd, a University of Wyoming graduate, will present “Startup to Scaleup: FullContact’s Story of Accelerators, Venture Funding and Growth” from 5:30-7 p.m. at the Marian H. Rochelle Gateway Center, 222 S. 22nd St.

Todd will tell the story of launching FullContact and the company's growth over the years, which includes acquiring four companies as well as the assets of two others. FullContact now has a presence in Denver, Dallas, Latvia and India, giving it a truly global presence. FullContact, which introduced the idea of "paid, paid vacation" in 2012, has consistently been voted as one of the best companies to work for by Outside Magazine.

FullContact provides a suite of cloud-based contact management solutions for businesses, developers and individuals. Launched from a basement in 2010 by Bart Lorang, Dan Lynn and Todd, FullContact has graduated from TechStars accelerator in Boulder, Colo., received $50 million in venture capital and now employs 230 people.

In addition to serving on FullContact's board of directors, Todd's current role is head of labs, which allows him to work on experimental, research and development projects. 

Todd received his bachelor’s degree in mechanical engineering from UW and his MBA from the University of Texas-Austin. He and his wife, Mindy, have two children, Houston (6) and Elsie (2), with a third child on the way. Raised on a family ranch in northeastern Wyoming, Todd and his family were excited for the opportunity to recently return to the state.

E2e is an educational networking program with chapters in Laramie, Casper, Gillette and Sheridan. It is designed to improve the climate for the startup and growth of entrepreneurial companies.
