Innovation and imagination—Voyager Search fills a huge market need
In June, 2008, Brian Goldin and Ryan McKinley saw—and decided to fill—the market need for a geospatial search tool. They pulled together $60,000 and founded Voyager Search. Within a few months, the open source software engineer and the geospatial specialist had a working model of what would become Voyager. They also had their first client, a single desktop license for which the client paid $1500.
That was just the beginning. Soon, they closed a large-scale sale in South Africa, and followed that up with an even larger deal with Northrup Grumman.
Global reach, private and public organizations use Voyager
Now, as a multimillion dollar company with clients across the globe, Voyager Search has employees located in California, Michigan, Vancouver, BC, and Washington, DC. Clients range across industries from defense, oil, gas and natural resources to federal and state government agencies.
Brian Goldin is CEO and partner and co-founder, Ryan McKinley, is the Chief Technology Officer.
CIO Review recognized the company on the April 2015 cover as the most innovative GIS company of the year.
