Reed one to watch in 2014
Harper Reed ’01 is someone to watch in 2014, according to the Chicago Tribune.
Reed made the list for his new start-up, Modest, which is supposed to launch in the first quarter of 2014, and will connect retailers with mobile buyers. Reed is CEO, and Dylan Richards is the Chief Technology Officer. The Tribune called the pair among Chicago’s best-pedigreed software developers, noting that both had worked on President Barack Obama’s 2012 re-election campaign. Reed served as chief technology officer for the campaign, and has been interviewed and profiled extensively for his work creating the technology that helped turn out volunteers and voters.
Reed was profiled in the Cornell Report in 2013 for his work on the campaign, along with two other Cornell alumni.
