Rick Nucci (@ricknucci) is the CEO and co-founder of Guru, a cloud knowledge management suite used by companies such as Shopify, Square, and Airbnb. Before Guru, he co-founded Boomi, a cloud integration service that was aquired by Dell in 2010.
Rick has also served as President of Philly Startup Leaders, a large community of local entrepreneurs and startup founders.
