Key Ring
Co-Founder & CTO
Dallas, TX
Ross Bates is the Co-Founder and CTO of Key Ring, one of the most popular mobile shopping apps on both iOS and Android. In 2009 he left his position as a Technical Architect at AT&T to pursue the dream of building something from the ground up. In the following years he helped build product, hire a team, raise VC money, scale the company, and ultimately had a successful exit in 2012. Ross made the leap from industry to startup and survived to tell about it. He is always eager and willing to talk with others about what he learned along the way.
