UCD Innovation would like to invite you to an interactive seminar with Hermann Hauser, one of Europe’s most successful entrepreneurs. This seminar is being delivered as part of the Brown Bag Lunch @ NovaUCD series of monthly talks chaired by Gavin Bourke, Nebula Ventures who has been working within the Irish venture arena for over 13 years.


Hermann Hauser has enjoyed a long and successful career both as an entrepreneur, in a wide range of technology sectors, and as a venture capitalist.


He is probably best well-known for his part in setting-up Acorn Computers with Chris Curry in 1978 which was subsequently acquired by Olivetti in 1985.  In 1990 Hermann was involved in spinning-out Advanced RISC Machines (ARM) from Acorn. Other companies he has founded or co-founded include Active Book Company, Virata, Net Products, NetChannel, and Cambridge Network Limited and he was a founder director of IQ (Bio), IXI Limited, Vocalis, SynGenix, Advanced Displays Limited, Electronic Share Information Limited and E*Trade UK.


In 1997 Hermann co-founded Amadeus Capital Partners, a pan European venture capital company, with over £470m under management and active investments in over 40 companies across Europe at any one time.


Hermann holds an MA in Physics from Vienna University and a PhD in Physics from the Cavendish Laboratory at King's College, Cambridge. He is a Fellow of the Institute of Physics and of the Royal Academy of Engineering and an Honorary Fellow of King's College, Cambridge.  He is a member of the Prime Minister’s Council for Science and Technology and was commissioned by the Department for Business, Innovation and Skills to write a report on technology and innovation in the UK, which contributed to the government's fund for Technology and Innovation Centres.
