Hungry Planet Technology
Austin, Texas
Marc has twenty five years' experience with imaginative and forward-looking start-ups in three distinct industry verticals - each involving disruptive technologies and transformative business models.

Hungry Planet is without question the most important and exciting. We have an answer to the question 'how will we feed nine billion people on a planet with changing water resources and increasing energy costs, while improving the environment'.

Previously, I founded two companies and sold the software assets (one to General Electric). In each case, we invented a new business process that changed the way others approached the industry. Our goal was to be either first or best, and we ended up doing both. That phrase has come to define how I approach business and the shortest description of how to create wealth - as being first or best is always a virtue. It has also served to guide my approach to developing an organization.

Ask Marc about the transformation of farming and just where it falls on the 'importance scale'; why all newly designed hardware should have some level of intelligence; how starting and building a great company has changed over the last twenty years; and why we should be the top choice for talented people who want to help change the world.
