Hi, I’m Mike Evans.

I founded GrubHub because I wanted a pizza and getting pizza was hard. I wrote version one of GrubHub.com in 2002. Armed with a “Sales for Dummies” book, I signed up hundreds of restaurants for online ordering. From there, I lead GrubHub through 5 financing rounds, a couple of acquisitions, a merger with Seamless, and ultimately, the IPO. Phew! With the IPO complete, I left GrubHub to ride my bike ride across the United States.  

My memoir, Hangry is about this whole “Create a billion dollar startup, and then punt it to go for a bike ride” thing. Sign up here to get a preorder link and get monthly updates on my publishing journey.

Opt out at any time. I will never sell or give away your data.

Since returning from my bike adventure, I’ve founded another company and embarked on a writing career. The company is Fixer.com. Fixer is an on-demand handyperson service. The key to the business is that the fixers are W-2 employees with benefits, trained from scratch in-house. Our goal is to reboot trade education in the United States. Which is, of course, a ridiculous goal.

Prior to business, and writing, and MIT, I grew up in northwest Georgia, the feral youngest child, reared by a heroic single mom.

(On occasion, people ask for a picture of me. I assume that’s because I’m speaking at their event. Though, conceivably, they may just want to throw darts at it. Regardless, feel free to use the images below.)
