Our Story: Founded by Angus Davis, the Providence, RI based company includes veterans of Tellme, Microsoft, Netscape, LivingSocial and SeamlessWeb, and is backed by leading Silicon Valley investors including First Round Capital, Index Ventures, Shasta Ventures, and Greylock Partners, among others. In 2013 Swipely was named to Forbes Magazine's list of "America's Most Promising Companies" and that same year recognized as the fastest growing tech company and 3rd largest creator of jobs in RI in Inc. Magazine's Hire Power Awards.
In 1999, Angus co-founded Tellme, which revolutionized speech recognition systems today used by 1 in 3 Americans. In 2007, Microsoft acquired Tellme in its largest-ever acquisition of a private company. Prior, Angus joined Netscape as their youngest employee where he was product manager for the company's leading Web browser. Angus was recently named by Forbes as one of "America's Most Promising CEO's Under 35".
Angus' favorite "Main Street" is his native Hope Street in seaside Bristol, Rhode Island: an historic street full of local shops that plays host to our country's oldest and most patriotic Fourth of July parade each summer.
