StartupHPC Meetup Coming to Denver at SC17

The StartupHPC Community will host their annual meetup at SC17 in Denver next month. StartupHPC is a grass roots community for STEM- and HPC-inspired entrepreneurs, corporations, venture capital firms, academia, government agencies, and support organizations. “If you can provide informal help or formal services to the startup community, let us know and we will include you in a leaflet given out at the meetup. If you are interested in entrepreneurship or are trying to grow a startup, stop by and see who can help you accelerate your progress.”

Seeking Innovators for the StartupHPC Workshop at SC16

In this special guest feature, Cydney Ewald Stevens writes that Salt Lake City will soon host the return of the SC conference along with the third annual StartupHPC Workshop. “People come together at StartupHPC to learn from each other,” said founder Shahin Khan. “These are all leaders in their own right. From successful CxO’ and serial entrepreneurs to industry influencers these leaders come together each year to impart their wisdoms and experiences, share their own ‘journeys’ and help others prosper as a result.”

Interview: John Gustafson on Technology Disruption and the StartupHPC Workshop

John Gustafson from A*Star will keynote the third annual StartupHPC Workshop on Nov 14 in Salt Lake City with a talk on Technology Disruption. Known to many in the HPC community as the father of Gustafson’s Law, John Gustafson was kind enough to sit down with us to share his perspectives on the current state of high performance computing. “The best way to spot a Startup opportunity is to notice an established vendor that has gotten too comfortable with its large market share, and thinks it can raise profit margins and resist the downward price pressure of Moore’s law.”

UberCloud Celebrates 3rd year of its HPC Cloud Marketplace Service

“When we started the marketplace 3 years ago the service we offered was all manual,” explained Wolfgang Gentzsch who founded UberCloud together with Burak Yenier in 2012. “But already then we were developing our HPC software container technology based on Docker which today provides a fully automated software packaging and porting environment and allows users to access their engineering workflow within seconds, at their fingertips, in any cloud. They don’t have to learn how to handle a new cloud user platform, because handling a software container provides the same look and feel identical to the engineer’s desktop.”

STEM IP – Advancing HPC, Industry & Society

“When it comes to commercialization of promising IP, HPC punches below its weight. That, we can and should change. Where does the HPC community get training on entrepreneurship? How do you become an entrepreneur? Does it have to be in your blood, or can you actually learn how to do it? It turns out you can learn most of it, and in the process (since nobody is excellent at everything), you also learn how to surround yourself with others who are good at other necessary things.”

Interview: Brent Gorda from Intel on the Keys to Startup Innovation for HPC

“Successful startups are the ones who have knowledge and a strong focus on a problem to solve. Knowledge comes from experience and there is no better way to accumulate that than working at one of the HPC facilities in the US or abroad. In fact I participated in this directly, moving to the US to work at a DOE lab. These opportunities still exist but the Labs often find it difficult to compete with Facebook and Google. If you are able to attend SC15 in Austin, you absolutely must visit the booths on the show floor and engage with the staff and seek out opportunities that exist. Again, SC is where the industry meets research and amazing things happen: go make it happen for you!”
