As an investment manager with the Inventors Fund in Auckland, NZ (and an adviser to National University of Singapore Enterprise), I have had the pleasure to work with Professor. Giovanni Russello on cyber-security innovation, including his patent-pending application for safe, searchable encryption, Safe in the Cloud. A second-time startup CEO who raised $1M US for his previous venture, Dr. Russello has also worked in industry in Europe and elsewhere. He is the founding director of the Cyber Security Foundry, New Zealand's premier cyber-security institute and a hub for industry-focused research based on next-generation technology. A widely-published thought-leader in data security, in particular encryption in the cloud, Dr. Russello has a solid understanding of the startup environment, including building and leading technical teams as well as working with external consultants and advisers. An engaging speaker with a collegial style, he would be an energetic addition to ICE71 Inspire.
