Mike Rosengarten

Co-Founder & CEO,

Mike Rosengarten co-founded Camino, a technology company focused on building better software for a better Government. Camino is an intelligent system of record software streamlining Permitting, Licensing, and other regulated processes in local government. Mike spends the bulk of his time with the product team designing and delivering deeply technical solutions to customers.

Before founding Camino, Mike co-found and led Product & Engineering at OpenGov where he built engineering, design, and product teams to build financial reporting, visual analytics, and data workflow platforms. OpenGov became one of the fastest-growing SaaS companies in history in the public sector while he was there. During that time, Mike helped grow the company from a handful of people to nearly 100+, raise $50m+ in venture capital from top-tier investors, and scale their products from 1 to hundreds of customers. Before working in the public sector, much of Mike’s background was in online advertising and he held various positions building software for behavioral targeting, ad optimization, and yield optimization products.

Mike holds a BS degree in Computer Science from the University of California at Santa Barbara. Outside of Camino, Mike enjoys programming, investing in startups, and is studying the shift in how cryptography will bring privacy and economic agency to modern society.
