STEVEN DUQUE

I'm the founder/CEO of Momba, a retail start-up that uses intelligent, customized vending machines to serve all sorts of "residential essentials" – from laundry detergent to computer chargers – to people who live in large-scale residences like university dorms, luxury high-rises and hotels. We're currently operating on 4 universities' campuses – Harvard, UMass-Amherst, BU and Westfield State – and sell Momba machines to luxury residential communities.

Prior to Momba, I worked at Bullhorn, a global leader in cloud-based recruiting software and services. I joined Bullhorn to help launch Bullhorn Reach as the product's first marketing manager, became the product's first enterprise account executive as we began monetizing it, and served as its Evangelist to deepen its position as a thought leader in social recruiting and recruiting innovation, before ultimately serving as the Bullhorn's Social Media Evangelist. Before Bullhorn, I worked in business development & strategy at Jack Morton Worldwide (an IPG company), a leading global brand experience agency.

I received my Bachelor's degree in philosophy and sociology from Harvard College. At Harvard, I co-founded and led The Harvard Voice as its publisher. I then toured cross-country as frontman of the band Big Time. In 2011, we released an EP as Mount Auburn.

I'm the happy husband of Heather Duque – and proud father of Aurora Duque.
