TripAdvisor Founder/CEO Stephen Kaufer

Many believe Boston can’t do consumer tech startups. TripAdvisor proves them wrong.
TripAdvisor users have written 225M reviews for the service—compare that to Yelp’s community which has only generated 77M reviews. Over 190M people have downloaded one of TripAdvisor’s apps and nearly 50% of their traffic comes from mobile devices. CEO Stephen Kaufer and his 3,000+ employees have built a company that has evolved from “Web 2.0” to “Mobile First” while earning a $12B market cap, right here in Boston.
