Joe De Pinto was born and raised in Los Angeles, CA. After spending 4 years playing professional baseball in the Chicago White Sox farm system, he co-founded his first venture, Barpay, in 2015 with Daniel Wagner. The company has since grown to become a leader in the mobile ordering and payment space for in-venue dining at bars, restaurants, and hotels, as well as digital menus, with more than 10,000 accounts throughout the United States.
In January 2021, along with Wagner, he co-founded Haste, the world’s first Instant Leaderboard Payout arcade. DePinto’s vision for Haste is to have the platform serve as a fun and entertaining visual representation of micro transactions, and how they can empower new business models. Along with his duties at Barpay and Haste, Joe is an avid surfer, and enjoys being outdoors as much as possible.
