Abstract’s Founders, Patrick Utz, Matthew Chang, and Mohamad Mohammed Hayat, have made the first Forbes 30 under 30 list for Los Angeles! The Local List features the top entrepreneurs, activists and creatives in vibrant innovation hubs across the country.
Patrick Utz, Abstract Co-Founder & CEO shared his excitement (about making it on the list): “I am Incredibly honored to represent the top 30 individuals, advancing change in LA. Scaling Abstract here has been a blast with support across universities (loyola Marymount university Keisner program) , venture capital firms (amplifyla, stagevp, deck point capital, wndrco), and incredible individuals (jack brody, jarl mohn, david herbst, carol costello, dan offner, Adele Rom, Lucas, Rex McArthur, jim goodman, alon, David Choi, lauren scott phillips).”
From 2020 to now we have worked hard to create the “Atlassian for government data,” aiming to make lobbying accessible through a collaborative workflow management platform built on the largest structured dataset of state government documents. Thank you to Forbes for including our Founders in this year’s list! And to our users, we’re excited to continue growing and building out Abstract. Stay tuned for some new and improved product updates!
