Abstract: Unlike many young techie entrepreneurs of the internet boom, I entered the game, after the age of fifty and managed to start two venture backed companies. A young entrepreneur may face different challenges than I did as a well established MIT professor. Nevertheless, the key attributes of a high-tech startup do not depend upon the age of the entrepreneur. In this talk, I will describe my motivations for plunging into the business world, the things I learned about sales and marketing people and venture capitalists, and ultimately how this experience affected my work at MIT.
Biography: Arvind is the Johnson Professor of Computer Science and Engineering at MIT and is currently visiting Seoul National University under the WCU program. Arvind’s group, in collaboration with Motorola, built the Monsoon dataflow machines and its associated software in the late eighties. In 2000, Arvind started Sandburst which was sold to Broadcom in 2006. In 2003, Arvind co-founded Bluespec Inc., an EDA company to produce a set of tools for high-level synthesis. In 2001, Dr. R. S. Nikhil and Arvind published the book \"Implicit parallel programming in pH\". Arvind\'s current research focus is on enabling rapid development of embedded systems.
Arvind is a Fellow of both IEEE and ACM, and a member of the National Academy of Engineering.
