Zach Supalla is an entrepreneur, a maker, and a designer. He is the founder and CEO of Particle, a startup that’s making it easier to build internet-connected hardware. Zach juggles hardware design, front-end software development, and leading his team through the trials and tribulations of a hardware startup.
The Particle team led a successful Kickstarter campaign for their product, the Particle Core, in May 2013, raising nearly $600K in 30 days off a goal of $10K. They’re now shipping to 61 countries, with thousands of engineers and developers building new connected devices with their technology. Their products have been featured in Wired, Engadget, Fast Company, TechCrunch, the Discovery Channel, and many other publications.
Zach is a graduate of HAXLR8R, the only incubator for hardware start-ups that will teach you to order bubble tea in perfect Mandarin. He also has an MBA from the Kellogg School of Management and an MEM (masters in engineering management) from the McCormick School of Engineering at Northwestern. Before Particle, Zach worked as a management consultant with McKinsey & Company, advising Fortune 500 companies on strategy, operations, and product development.
