“I knew from a young age that I could turn my ideas into real business opportunities.”
Dr. Thuc Vu, a graduate of Carnegie Mellon with a Ph.D. in Computer Science from Stanford University, is at once a serial entrepreneur, an innovator, and an engineer. He founded and co-founded a number of tech companies, including “automatic friend sorter” Katango, which was acquired by Google. He went on to create Tappy.co, a “hyper-local social app” that turns small communities into thriving social networks. The Vietnam-based startup was quickly bought by Weeby.co. Then in 2015, Thuc co-founded Ohmnilabs, a firm dedicated to “reinventing traditional robotics development”. His latest project, Kambria, is a blockchain-based platform that encourages research and design collaboration in the robotics world.
For this installment of our How I Manage series, where we meet with business executives and learn about how they build and manage teams, Thuc shares how he manages startup teams, mixes his interests in business and science, and his commitment to doing work in both the U.S. and Vietnam.
