COM Alumnus and Former ASCOM President Wins $275,000 Google Android Developer Challenge
Former ASCOM President Chris Hulls recently received the good news that his startup, Life360, was selected as a first place winner in the Google Android Developer Challenge. Out of 1,788 entries, Life360 was one of the top 10 companies to be awarded a $275,000 prize. Hulls credits COM Business and Information Systems Professor Robert Kennedy for much of his current success.
Hulls grew up in Pt. Reyes and attended Tomales High. While in high school, he concurrently enrolled in classes at COM and graduated high school a year early. After a brief stint in the air force, he reenrolled at COM with an interest in entrepreneurship. He discovered that COM was a place where intelligent people got a clean slate.
“College of Marin is not only a viable option, it is a desirable option…a springboard to a higher path,” said Hulls.
In summer 2004, he transferred to UC Berkeley as a business major. He received his baccalaureate from the Haas School of Business and was accepted as a graduate student at Harvard Business School. Hulls has recently taken a deferment from Harvard to focus on his duties as CEO of Life360. For more information visit Life360.
