Guy Horrocks | LLB, BCom | Solve Co-Founder www.solve.io
Guy co-founded Solve, which helps companies upgrade and operationalise their internal data.
Horrocks’ first start up was a blood splatter analysis company, which used software to analyse crime scenes. He started the world’s first iPhone app company, Polar Bear Farm, and then moved to New York with his mobile agency Carnival Labs, which had a client list that included CNN and Dreamworks. He also co-founded a mobile marketing startup, Carnival Mobile, backed by Google which was acquired in 2016 by Sailthru.
Horrocks says the mentoring he received from former UC Vice-Chancellor Dr Rod Carr, after he won the 2006 Entré competition as a student in his early 20s, set him on a path for success. “He helped me a lot and now I’ve got the experience to give back to UC in a different way.”
