Zack Steven
Cloudburst, SBC, CEO

Zack Steven is the co-founder and CEO of Cloudburst, SBC. His first venture was in high school selling hundreds of dollars of candy a week to his classmates. In college, he started a business for his patented shoe ties, Zackaroos, which would come to be sold in 38 states and Canada.

Since then, he’s co-founded seven companies, raised hundreds of thousands in investment, generated millions in revenue, and reached hundreds of thousands of users with his tech creations including the viral Twitter app Localtweeps.

For all his success, he’s experienced even more failure, which is why Zack is obsessed with giving back to the entrepreneurial community through projects like Cloudburst, the Twin Cities’ first coworking space, and angel investing through Monkey Island Ventures.
