Edgar has had an very varied background -- pioneered DSPs within TI, founding team of a startup (IXI Mobile), venture capitalist at Vantage ... Partners, as well as corporate development at Qualcomm. He has technical depth, marketing savvy, and a strategic mind. He has a broad outlook, but is familiar with the nitty gritty of growing a company and executing. He'd be ideal as an advisor.
Maxime Bouvat-Merlin
We worked together  •  Vice President of Engineering, QuickLogic. Previously Director, Product Management and Technology Roadmap, Qualcomm.
Edgar and I worked together at TI, Qualcomm and more recently at QuickLogic, where he was one of our Board Members. In each of these compani ... es, Edgar demonstrated to be a very critical strategic thinker, capable to quickly assess a product roadmap/strategy and find the flaws. Then, his experience, networking connections and natural skills make it very easy for him to make recommendations for improving the outlook of the company/business unit. Over the last 20 years, Edgar has been able to build a wide experience ranging from big corporate to smaller companies. This will definitely help him to become a great advisor for small and large business.
