Timothy Rost
We worked together  •  General Manager, Syndiant, Inc and Head of R&D, Syndiant, Inc. The University of Texas at Austin grad.
I had the fortune to work closely with Karl for 6 years while he was co-founder and CTO. Karl is a true inventor who knows the ins and outs ... of the patent system and how to turn a patent into a product. He excels at developing novel ideas and assembling a stellar team to execute the vision. He is also a great communicator and presenter to any audience. Without hesitation I recommend Karl as a founder or co-founder.
Gene Frantz
We worked together  •  Professor in the practice, Rice University and Principal Fellow, Texas Instruments.
Karl and I worked together at Texas Instruments for many years. He was a senior architect of processor devices. I was looking for users an ... d new uses of technology. We spent a great deal of time arguing through the new market opportunities and the architectures that would fulfill the needs of those markets. Karl was always at the leading edge of new concepts of architectures. To answer your question exactly, he is already an entrepreneur so don't need to explain why he would be a good one.
