Mark Kasdorf, Founder & CEO
Mark is the Founder & CEO of Forge, a Boston-based startup on a mission to build and power the next-generation trades worker. In 2010, fresh out of graduate school and having never had a job in the “real world,” he started his first entrepreneurial venture (or at least the first one that generated revenue): Intrepid. Bootstrapped from inception to exit, Intrepid utilized an apprentice-style training model to create one of the largest mobile development firms on the East Coast before selling to Accenture in 2017. Mark loves building companies and solving problems. When he’s not, you can find him cooking, running, playing chess, and thinking about how technology is going to change our lives. He is the father of 3 incredible kids, mission-driven, and wakes up every morning to build and power the next generation trades community.
