An Evening with Hermann Hauser

January 28, 2015 @ 6:00 pm - 9:00 pm EST
This event is for SyndicateRoom investors and people interested in investing in early stage private companies. The premise of the evening is for you to listen to experienced investors, in this case Hermann Hauser, and meet like-minded people. The format is relaxed and there’s plenty of time for networking.
About Hermann Hauser
Hermann is a speaker who doesn’t really need an introduction.

Hermann’s career includes founding Acorn computers and later leading the spin-out of ARM – a public company with almost £13bn market cap. His work at ARM and Acorn is considered by John Scully, then Apple CEO, to have saved what is now one of the world’s most valuable companies.

Following other very successful ventures, including Active Book Company (sold to AT&T), Hermann became an active angel investor and founded Amadeus Capital Partners, one of Europe’s largest and most prolific venture capitalists.

Some of Hermann’s most successful investments so far have been:
  1. Cambridge Silicon Radio, which went on to become the world’s de facto Bluetooth standard. Amadeus Capital Partners were a lead investor and made 12 times their money during the company’s IPO.
  2. Solexa, a gene-sequencing company which massively disrupted the market, taking the cost of gene-sequencing from £10 million to £1,000. Solexa sold to Illumina for £670m.
  3. Entropic Research Laboratory, a semi-conductor company, sold to Microsoft.
  4. Icera, sold to Nvidia for $367 million.

Hermann was also the lead investor in e-Go Aeroplanes which recently raised £950k with the help of SyndicateRoom investors.
