Willie Ford, CEO & Founder
"Our technology inspires people to do their best- to constantly be improving. Givego brings excitement, joy and inspiration to our community- that's what makes me most proud."
Recipient of Sporting Goods Business’ 40 under 40 Award in 2016, a 2X NCAA All American, and a graduate of The University of New Hampshire, Willie is obsessed with mission driven entrepreneurship. Willie, along with the others on the executive team, built POC and sold it to Black Diamond Equipment, and then to Investcorp. Willie left his managing director position at POC in 2018 to start and build Givego.
Willie decided it was time to build a business that supports both the professional athlete (the expert) and the passionate sports enthusiast when his sister went to the Olympics in 2014. When Julia got the call she was on Team USA, it was truly exciting... until she had to raise nearly $15,000 USD to get herself to the games. Willie decided he needed to build a business to support professional athletes and coaches, so they can keep their eye on their dreams while supporting and inspiring the masses.
