Robert Seidl ADVISOR
Mr. Seidl started his first company while still in high school. For the past three decades, he has started a number of software companies, held engineering as well as marketing and executive leadership roles, and worked in established Silicon Valley companies like Apple and Adobe following acquisitions.
Mr. Seidl has an engineering background, but has always focused on creating user-friendly products. In 1995, he founded the company that built the first commercial dedicated web page editor and web site management tool: PageMill. PageMill was quickly acquired by Adobe and generated over $20 million in sales in its first year. In 2000, Metacreations Inc. acquired his next company, Canoma, whose technology allowed rapid creation of photorealistic, textured 3D models from images. Since 2002, he has managed Realtime Video Systems, a technology licensing company that provides U.S. drone vendors with video processing and object tracking software. He also co-founded Genius.com, funded by MDV/Accel/Emergence/Walden, which provides sales and marketing people at B2B companies with easy to use and real-time lead generation and nurturing tools.
