Event Details

Mike Harris, Zonoff

As a successful serial entrepreneur, Mike Harris has founded and/or led numerous venture-backed technology companies to successful exits, including a NASDAQ IPO. Mike’s most recent start-up, AnySource Media, was launched in 2006 and delivered a 4X return to investors 18 months after investment, when it was acquired by DivX in August of 2009. In June of 2010 DixX was acquired by Sonic Solutions, which in turn was acquired by Rovi (NASDAQ: ROVI) six months later. The original embedded software developed by AnySource still serves as the foundation for DivX TV, which can be found on LG’s line of connected Blu-Ray players. (Click here to see the actual DivX TV demo.) Just as AnySource provided core technology for “connected TV,” Mike’s vision for Zonoff is to provide the core technology for the “connected home.” Same concept… but a much bigger opportunity. Early in Mike’s career, he was the founder and CTO of Ravisent Technologies Inc., a technology pioneer in the DVD industry. Ravisent won numerous business and technical accolades including Frost and Sullivan’s "Excellence in Strategy" award, the "Technology Pioneer" award from the World Economic Forum, and the Deloitte and Touche "Fast 500" award. The company won this last award three times, including one year when the company was ranked number 1 in its region and 9th nationally. Mike oversaw the development and adoption of Ravisent’s technology by leading PC and consumer electronics manufacturers, raising nearly $100M in venture and public financing, and ultimately achieving a $1B valuation on the NASDAQ market. Ravisent was ultimately acquired by STMicroelectronics, and Mike became its Group Vice President, Global Software Strategy. After STMicroelectronics, Mike served as President of Digital 5, a venture backed software provider enabling streaming media content within the connected home, and later became President of OpenPeak, a provider of software for home media control. Mike is a graduate of Purdue University with a degree in Computer and Electrical Engineering.
