#CommunePH Startup Meetup with Silver Keskküla of Teleport, Inc.
October 21, 2014 @ 7:00 pm - 9:00 pm
A meetup with Silver Keskküla of Teleport, Inc. Silver is a hacker, a researcher and a nomad. He joined Skype as the first researcher in the core team in the early days which led to his most recent role as a Principal Software Development Engineer at Microsoft. At Skype Silver was optimizing peer-to-peer network topologies using machine learning and AI and pushed neural networks to hundreds of millions of computers. His nomadic lifestyle has led him to pursue education in universities such as Tsinghua, Stanford and MIT. As a Phd dropout from Swiss Federal Institute of Technology he holds a Masters in Computer Science from Chalmers University of Technology.
Teleport, Inc., his new startup, is a “search engine for digital nomads.”
“We build software for digital nomads.
Moving ourselves and our families around the globe we have become all too familiar with the hassles this lifestyle brings. Figuring out where to stay, what to expect, where to pay taxes or which visa to get. Rinse and repeat.
We mapped out hundreds of relocation nuisances we could fix with software. Once these get solved millions of people like us could benefit. So there was no choice but to start this company.
Over the last decade most of our team were busy building Skype which turned out to be quite effective making the world smaller in the metaphorical sense. We believe we can now rearrange the human population physically as well.”
Join us as we swap stories about startups, exchange ideas and share experiences and learnings!
