Tachyum CEO Discusses Success in Entrepreneurism at Startup Grind London Fireside Chat

SAN JOSE, Calif., Sept. 14, 2018 – Dr. Radoslav Danilak, Co-founder and CEO of Silicon Valley startup Tachyum Inc., is the featured speaker of a Startup Grind London Fireside Chat at the Wework Moorgate in London September 18 at 6 p.m. He will be presenting his expertise in building and selling companies to an audience comprised of the organization’s community of entrepreneurs.

A frequent presenter at technology trade shows around the world, Danilak has more than 25 years of industry experience and over 100 patents designing state-of-the-art processing systems. In the Startup Grind event, he will share his experience in building and selling multiple companies for hundreds of millions of dollars, as well as leadership lessons in running Tachyum as it aims to solve the processing performance plateau of nanometer-class chips.

Well-known as a Silicon Valley entrepreneur Danilak is a member of the Forbes Technology Council and serves on the Slovak government’s Innovation Advisory Board. He was born and studied in Slovakia. He taught at the Technical University of Kosice, where he earned his PhD. Rado immigrated to the U.S., where he was a processor architect at Gizmo Technologies and at Toshiba on the PlayStation 2 team, before joining NVIDIA, where he was a contributing architect on their Tesla and Fermi GPUs. The Fermi chip was used by China to build the world’s fastest supercomputer, Tianhe-1A. Danilak cofounded SandForce, which was sold to LSI for $377M, and Skyera, acquired by HGST.

“Many would-be entrepreneurs have a good idea or a good product and think that it means that this automatically translates into their having created a good company,” said Danilak. “Creating, building, growing and eventually selling a company requires hard work, perseverance, good people around you and a bit of luck. I look forward to sharing with those at my Startup Grind chat the secrets to success so that they may have a leg up on the competition when entering the business world.”
