Austin Archuleta has joined the Advice family as Director of Strategic Development upon the acquisition of Scanther.
While attending UT Austin’s Cockrell School of Engineering, Austin and older brother EJ started several innovative side projects, setting the stage for a platform to empower local businesses to leverage mobile app technology.
That idea grew into Scanther, software that gained recognition in the local marketing industry and also landed Austin a spot at the Global Student Entrepreneur Awards, where his regional competition win allowed him to compete as a global finalist.
Scanther became Austin’s main priority after his 2013 graduation, and its introduction to Advice Local in 2016 created immediate synergy, leading to Advice’s acquisition of Scanther in August, 2016.
During his spare time, Austin enjoys playing soccer with friends, hunting, boating, the Zen-like game of disc golf, and traveling.
