Marc Siden is the Co-founder and CEO of Onboard Informatics. His company began as local data startup in a Greenwich Village basement in 2001 and today powers web and mobile content initiatives for hundreds of leaders in the real estate, publishing, finance, and technology industries. Marc brings over 20 years of diverse technology, information services and finance experience to the culture of Onboard. He began his career on Wall Street where he spent eight years, before creating New Beginnings Venture Group, a venture capital firm.
His excitement for the evolving online real estate industry led him to Monsterdaata.com, a company he invested in at New Beginnings. While the concept was strong, the dotcom bust and 9/11 attacks struck MonsterDaata hard. Lessons learned and ideas in hand, Marc went on to co-found Onboard. Marc personifies both the industry and the passion of New York and of Onboard. He hasn’t forgotten where he came from: he mentors and coaches ice hockey in Harlem and serves on the advisory board of TORCH, an organization that provides business opportunities and internships to inner city high school students.
