You never know when you will get bit by the entrepreneurship bug. For Doug Booth, it came early in his career while he was working at ExactTarget. The opportunity presented itself and Doug and his business partner Aaron couldn’t say no.
Doug Booth is the CEO of Multiply Technology, an Indianapolis-based company that helps global enterprises and rapidly growing orgs implement complex IT Asset Management strategies and solutions.
Doug began his career at ExactTarget by way of the Orr Fellowship program. During his time at ET Doug identified a need and started building. ExactTarget then transitioned from Doug’s employer to Doug’s largest customer and he’s been building Multiply ever since.
