What did you do before the factory?
I've been working in tech for over 20 years, and have been founder or CTO at multiple startups including xrnd, mydeco and Rockpack. Prior to getting hooked on the startup drug, I held senior engineering positions in a number of global corporations including Motorola and Disney.
What do you do at the factory?
As the Chief Incubation Officer I lead the support & guidance on building our incubation teams, products & businesses. Our mission to develop a repeatable methodology for creating innovative & successful technology start-ups is one I take very personally and is my main focus. To this end, I have the responsibility of shaping the organisational structures and processes for our incubation program.
What makes you a good founder?
I'm comfortable tackling seemingly impossible challenges and persevering through the uncertainties that startups bring. Moreover, I believe I'm able to build & lead tech startup teams that inherit the same resiliance.
