About Guy Horrocks
Guy Horrocks is the co-founder of Solve, a data infrastructure startup based in New York and New Zealand. Solve is a hybrid of SaaS and open source, where we will deploy the entire data infrastructure into the customer’s owned environment. This means a company owns both the data, as well as the underlying source code, providing the benefits of both build vs. buy. Guy previously was the CEO and co-founder of Carnival.io a mobile marketing automation platform that helped companies with push notifications, in-app messaging and analytics.

Customers included Target, Sephora, Expedia, T-Mobile, MAC Cosmetics, OREO and AB InBev. Carnival was acquired by Sailthru in 2016, where Guy served as VP of Mobile and Partnerships prior to their sale in 2018 to CM Group / Campaign Monitor. Carnival was backed by leading investors including Google Ventures, Gary Vaynerchuk, Lerer Hippeau and Bowery Capital.

Prior to Carnival, Guy co-founded the world’s first iPhone app company Polar Bear Farm, helping as a pioneer of the jailbreak market pre-iTunes Appstore. Guy’s first company was BSA Technologies, a blood spatter analysis forensic startup, helping forensic scientists determine the point of impact at crime scenes.

Guy loves helping early-stage startups, he is an investor in www.getmaude.com, www.dropelfabrics.com, www.otherland.com, www.raakachocolate.com, www.butler-nyc.com, and
for the last 8 years has run a monthly Kiwi entrepreneur “Flat White Meetup” at Happy Bones in
Soho.
