Public Stuff, Founder & CEO
PublicStuff is a service that allows you to capture and notify the correct department in a city to get things fixed, and it rolled out of the first class of Entrepreneurs Roundtable Accelerator. It was quickly named one of the top 25 startups to watch by Business Insider. The following year, founder Lily Liu was named one of the top 30 under 30 Entrepreneurs by Forbes and earlier this year, made the Forbes list of companies to watch in 2014. It’s no wonder : the platform is currently being used in over 200 cities – and counting. As for Liu herself, did we mention that the Carnegie Mellon grad was the youngest analyst under Mayor Bloomberg‘s Department of Education for special analytics and projects, where she helped manage the $20B budget and teacher union negotiation ? Or that she’s into extreme sports, loves to arm wrestle and has yet to lose a match ? Again, she’s one to watch out for !
