Guy Hagen's Summary

Guy Hagen has a 25 year career as an experienced researcher, innovator, strategist and entrepreneur.

In 1989 and at the age of 21, he was a founder of Advanced Interactives Inc., a technology startup which developed solutions for integrating multimedia felon databases across city, state, county, and federal law enforcement agencies. He raised over $200,000 in angel funding to develop a working prototype that put digital cameras in the hands of police officers a decade before such systems became common.

From 1995-2001, he managed a technology venture fund for the U.S. Depts. of Energy and Defense, and administered an annual $1 million program in university-industry applied technology grants at the University of South Florida. He reviewed hundreds of business plans and helped to further the development and marketing of dozens of new technologies, and was closely involved in contract and intellectual property matters for many successful projects.

In 2001, Hagen founded Innovation Insight, a Florida research firm that specialized in high-tech market intelligence. Innovation Insight provided market research, digital strategy and measurement, organizational and social network analysis, econometrics and qualitative+quantitative research design and execution.

In 2011, his firm merged with Tucker/Hall, one of Florida’s largest and most respected PR agencies. As a Shareholder and VP, Hagen leads the firm's digital strategy and research practice areas. He is also helping develop several proprietary technologies and service capabilities in digital marketing, cybersecurity communications, and public engagement systems.

Hagen is an early digital native, having learned machine language on Apple II computers and mainframe hacking on North Dakota’s BitNet networks. He has developed in several languages and database platforms, and continues to develop regularly in PHP, MySQL, and JQuery. He currently has over 17,000 Twitter followers and more than 1,500 LinkedIn contacts.
