  5. Who is Mike Gaffray?Image Upload
    Mike Ghaffary Vice President of Business and Corporate Development at Yelp

    • Harvard Business School
    • Harvard Law School
    • BS & BA Computer Science and Political Science

    • Spearheaded the acquisition for Eat24
    • Food is a really important category for Yelp.” We were really impressed with what we had seen on our platform and we decided that taking a step even further to be able to expand coverage and further improve the user experience would make sense.
    • Response to a conflict of interest - I think what you’ll continue to see from us is that if we can improve the experience for consumers by having more partners on the platform, we’ll just keep bringing on more partners. If an acquisition can continue to improve the experience, we’ll do that, too.
    • My definition of local commerce has evolved to keep up with the times. It’s any time one person transacts with a business and has some sort of face-to-face interaction with another person or place. 
    • I’m a big user of ecommerce stores and I ship things to my house all the time. It’s certainly convenient, yet I think people crave local experiences. I think what’s really interesting is in the era of massive ecommerce, you’ve seen a premium placed on local downtowns and what I would call like Yelp-y businesses.
    • Eventually monetize that when and where possible, but we’ve always known that the monetization comes with a delay, too, so that’s a nice thing is that we can just continue to launch these markets.
