CEO Dinner with Matt Kraning

We’re excited to start the new year off strong with a CEO dinner on the first Wednesday of winter quarter. If you’ve been divided between pursuing further education and starting a company (our guest did both!) or are curious about the workings of the Internet, be sure to attend! We’ll be joined by Matt Kraning, co-founder and CTO at Qadium. Matt completed his BS in Physics, MS in EE, and PhD in EE – all at Stanford. He then worked at Darpa for a couple of years before starting Qadium, a company that is poised to be one of the most important of this generation. Qadium indexes all devices connected to the Internet, which is proving to be extremely valuable, especially with the rise of the Internet of Things. Should be an awesome conversation!
