Colin Barry


I am a product manager focused on storefront ecommerce at Wayfair.

Before that, I worked on user acquisition and engagement at Localytics.

Before that, I worked at athenahealth.

I graduated from Harvard Business School in May 2012. I focused my coursework and time/energy on technology entrepreneurship.

I worked on Peddl -- the easiest way to buy and sell things from the people around you. We were a finalist in the MIT $100K Business Plan Contest in 2012, and we won the mobile track.

I was also a co-founder at Meater, a mobile biotech platform to detect illness in beef cattle. We were finalists in MIT $100K ACCELERATE in 2011. I still think that data and analytics will change how agribusiness works.

I spent the summer between my first and second years of graduate school at athenahealth doing process innovation (product management) for athenaClinicals, a cloud-based electronic health record app.

In my first year of business school, I took a class called Entrepreneurship Lab at the MIT Sloan School that gave me the opportunity to work with QD Vision, a nanomaterials startup.

Before that, I was an infantry officer in the U.S. Marine Corps. I was in 2d Battalion, 3d Marines in Kaneohe Bay, HI. My battalion deployed to Karmah, Iraq, and southern Afghanistan. When I lived in Hawaii, I enjoyed scuba diving and trail running. I left active duty in August 2010 and began my MBA two weeks later.

Before that, I went to Dartmouth College. I majored in economics and philosophy. I was the president of The Dartmouth, a daily newspaper that is the oldest college paper in America. The Dartmouth is NOT the same thing as the Dartmouth Review.

I wrote code for the U.S. Navy (probabilistic neural networks!) and CGI (back when it was AMS), and I started a catchily-named web development shop with a friend. I went to high school at St. Albans School in Washington, DC.
