Richard Moross started MOO, an online printing & designing business that manufactures and sells premium print and branded stuff for corporate customers worldwide.

MOO was founded in 2006 to disrupt the trillion-dollar global print business by merging the ideals of professional design with the web’s affordability and reach.

The company started as a business card printer, and its product range has expanded to include, postcards, greeting cards, stationery, drinkware, accessories, and other custom products.

This technology-focused manufacturing company has become one of the world’s fastest-growing print firms, with over 400 workers in the UK and US, including London, Boston, Lincoln, RI, and Denver, CO.

The founder has been working in the design industry for an extended period and wanted to have something of his own where he can make the design more accessible for people by integrating design with technology. This led to him starting his company.

MOO acquired big-level investors in their institutional Series A round to expand the business. Index and Atlas are the investors who saw potential in the business and decided to join with MOO to take it to the next level.

The founder was named to the Times Newspaper’s '40 Under 40’ list, the Telegraph Newspaper’s '100 Most Influential People in Technology, and the 1,000 ‘Most Powerful People in British Business.’

In addition to his daily work, he has served as an FTSE 250 NED, a board member of the Young President’s Organization, and an active mentor to early-stage entrepreneurs and firms in the UK startup ecosystem.

Today, MOO has hundreds of thousands of customers in more than 190 countries.
