Bo is a true visionary and leader. When we worked together at PARC, I saw him push research in Ubiquitous Computing in new and exciting dire ... ctions long before the 'Internet of Things' became a fashionable concept. This is not to say he only cares about research: his expertise spans the whole spectrum from innovation to product development and he's a great leader for technical teams. He always provides valuable insight and on top of it all, he is really easy to talk to. I am certain any entrepreneur would find his perspective invaluable.

Partnering with Bo was a highlight of my career- I proudly vouch for him in any advisory or leadership position.
