About

Our LEADERSHIP Team

Andy Tryba

CEO


Andy is a technology optimist and the founder & CEO of Think3, founder & CEO of Crossover, co-founder & CEO of RideAustin and the CEO of a variety of technology companies including Engine Yard, DNN Corp, Kayako, Bizness Apps, FogBugz, School Loop, Agemni & SLI Systems. 

 

Andy’s most recent venture is a $1B private equity fund called Think3.  Think3 is designed to enable entrepreneurs to exit their startups earlier to take more shots at creating new innovation. The firm fundamentally believes that founders should think of their career as a portfolio - and sell their modestly growing company earlier to start their next high growth venture/unicorn. Think3 purchases these companies, enables a unique process to enable the founder and team to go start their new venture - and provides them $500k as non-equity angel funds to assist.

Through this fund - Andy has purchased and is currently the CEO of Engine Yard - a devops software company, CEO of DNN Corp - an open source content management platform, CEO of Kayako - a customer service software company, CEO of Bizness Apps - a mobile app publishing platform, CEO of FogBugz - a software developer workflow tool, CEO of School Loop - a learning management system for schools, CEO of Agemni - a sales enablement software and CEO of SLI System - a leading website search engine software.

Andy also founded Crossover in 2014 and has now grown it to become one of the largest online talent marketplaces - spanning over 130 countries. Crossover was established on the belief that the best talent is distributed worldwide - but opportunity isn’t.  

In his spare time - Andy is also the co-founder & CEO of the world’s only non-profit rideshare called RideAustin.  RideAustin has completed nearly 3M rides to date while simultaneously raising over $400k for local charities.  

Andy is also passionate about the US-Japan international relationship.  He serves as a Delegate in the US-Japan Leadership Program - bringing together key leaders from both countries, he started a non-profit Japanese cultural and coding school in Austin called the Japanese Heritage Academy and serves as a Board Member of the Texas Central High Speed rail - the first private high-speed rail in the US exporting the Japanese Shinkansen technology.

Previously, Andy spent 14 years running strategy at Intel Corporation and was also an advisor to the US White House on the future of jobs and engineering talent.  He received a Bachelor of Science in Engineering from the University of Illinois and a MBA from Rice University.
