Nate most widely known for his keen product development methodologies and passions. Nate started his first company in 2004, a medical device start-up named Paramed, which was acquired by Stryker Medical (SYK) in 2009. Post acquisition Stryker retained Nate and lead the global research and development group of the emergency services division for two years. In 2011, Nate left Stryker to build Brightface, a product development company, focused on mobile and web applications. Cycleface was one of those products and was acquired by Strava Corporation, the #1 fitness app for endurance athletes in the world based in San Francisco. Nate is still an active advisor for Strava as they integrate the Cycleface experience for Strava’s users. Nate created and now heads Tanner Labs, a technology research and development division inside O.C. Tanner Recognition Company. Nate’s team has launched two start-ups in the last twelve months while working on a few more. His passions are his family, running, biking and great food!
