From an idea to a global technology revolution: the confessions of an entrepreneur  

Sir Hossein Yassaie is a leading figure on the world technology industry stage, an entrepreneur with a deep belief in technological innovation and disruptions that can solve real problems and make significant differences for the better. His work, both technically and entrepreneurially, has deeply impacted many electronics industries from digital TV and radio, PCs and games consoles through to automotive and most notably mobile devices.

Sir Hossein was behind the creation of Imagination Technologies, and its highly successful silicon IP business model, which powers billions of the world's leading mobile, consumer and automotive devices. He also created the iconic brand Pure, through developing and exploiting the disruptive digital radio technology that today powers 4 in 5 DAB radios.

In this talk, Sir Hossein will share some of his experiences and guiding principles in creating one of the most influential global technology powerhouses. He will touch on how his vision, and the products that Imagination Technologies created, helped to drive the smartphone revolution. The disruption resulted in massive change in the mobile industry and beyond, with long-standing players losing out to new brands.
