Yarrow Kraner is the Founder of HATCH and H360, an Aspen Institute Fellow, and named 2015 top 100 creatives in the U.S. by Origins. As a Filmmaker, he has directed projects for Richard Branson, The Rock, P Diddy, and international brands. In 1999, Yarrow created the original online community, Superdudes – 3 years before My Space – enabling users to create online identity, profile, friends lists, and play online games, to earn a chance at crowd-voted fame, and get printed in a deck of trading cards. The platform connected and empowered real life superheroes (there is a superhero within us all), and user engagement was higher than any other youth destination site at that time. The community grew to 1.5 Million users by 2003, when it was acquired by FOX in a bundle with MySpace for $580M. Six months later, Yarrow founded HATCH, a network of influencers accelerating progress on solutions for global challenges. In 2016 Yarrow founded H360, an A.I. / machine learning platform as the ultimate engagement and collaboration engine. The platform is designed to unleash the potential of communities, corporations, and other organizations while, creating a “Network of Networks” by match-making resources for collaborations to improve the world. Yarrow got a BA in Film from Montana State University.
