Richie Burke, Founder and President of GoGeddit, started the company shortly after graduating from Marquette University in 2011. Richie initially started GoGeddit as a promotional site, which in its first year, built a base of 15,000 users and 100+ clients. At the time, GoGeddit was also featured in Success Magazine multiple times as a finalist in their 2012 “Start Small Win Big” national startup competition. Burke officially pivoted the business into the “Small Business Growth” agency at the start of 2013 when he saw the opportunity small businesses had to thrive through social media, video, web design and other online marketing strategies. Since the pivot, GoGeddit has worked with clients locally, nationally and internationally, including: Siegelvision, Trek Travel, Bontrager, Blizzard Lighting, World Politics Review, Visuray, the Milwaukee Wave, and many more.
