Co-Founder & CEO

Seth Sternberg is the CEO and one of the Co-Founders of Meebo, overseeing all of the company's product and business operations. Sternberg, along with college friends Elaine Wherry and Sandy Jen, started Meebo in 2005 with a goal of connecting people to their friends across the web. In its fifth year, Meebo now enables almost 170 million people to instantly share with their friends across any communication network on the Web, and is used by more than 8,000 websites. Prior to starting Meebo, Sternberg worked in IBM's Corporate Development group as a lead in mergers and acquisitions. After transferring assets at IBM for a few years, he discovered that he would rather build assets and began work on Meebo. In his spare time Seth mentors aspiring entrepreneurs and students and is an avid pilot. Sternberg graduated from Yale University with a Bachelor of Arts in Political Science and International Relations, and attended Stanford Business School.
