Eric Gundersen

Eric Gundersen
Product Development, MapBox


Eric co-founded Development Seed more than five years ago and leads our communications strategy. One of Eric’s talents is seeing the big picture. This, combined with his ability to spot trends and shifts before practically everyone else, helps him come up with many of our brilliant ideas. His leadership and motivational skills turn many of these ideas into real communication tools that enable our clients to do more.

Eric is a strong communicator who knows how to ask the right questions to get the root of our clients’ needs. He works closely with our clients in the start of projects to understand their goals and craft innovative and effective approaches that will meet them.

Eric is a specialist in knowledge management and has presented his strategies and several of the tools we’ve built at conferences around the world. He’s involved with the MobileActive community, particularly with SMS campaigns and creating ringtones like “Brownie, you’re doing a heck of a job." Eric has also appeared on Nightline to discuss culture jamming and Chevy Tahoe’s consumer generated advertisements and the online backlash.

Eric earned his Masters Degree in International Development from American University in Washington, DC. He started Development Seed while researching technology access and microfinance in Peru.


This session will provide an overview of the Washington, D.C. government's recent decision to open up many of its public data streams for easy public use and the contest they sponsored to highlight the usefulness of this data. The session will then look in depth at two fully open source mapping websites built to make use of this data.
