Hi, I’m Howard Kingston. You may know me as the co-founder of Adludio, the energetic Irish entrepreneur, or the guy with lots of hair.
In late 2012 I co-founded Adludio. What started with an idea onstage at a Startup Weekend became a fast-growing mobile advertising business with Fortune 500 clients including Nike, Unilever, Red Bull, PayPal, Nestle, and dozens more. We’ve raised $3M in VC investment, became profitable (a rarity in tech these days 😉 & have won a number of awards.
My intro to the tech-startup world began with quite a ride: helping launch a gaming startup that grew to 15 million users & gained international acclaim before eventually being acquired.
Along the way I’ve been blessed with the opportunity to tick off some life goals, such as speaking at SXSW, being featured in amazing places such as BBC, Forbes, and Huffington Post, and being named as a member of London’s ‘Silicon 60′ and the Tech City Insider 100.
As well as entrepreneurship, I love setting myself challenges every year.
Some of my more bizarre challenges:
- Reading a book a week for a year (read how I did it)
- Learning to swim in 3 months, before completing an open water Olympic Triathlon
- DJing to 1,000+ people on Bora Bora beach, Ibiza
- Setting myself a goal of making $1m in 999 days
- Doing an Ironman
- Learning how to stand on my head
