Description

On this date, Archis Gore will be presenting “What Startups Should Know about Security.”

Archis is a co-founder and CTO of Polyverse Corporation, a cyber security company focused on protecting data center applications from large scale data breaches and disruption.

Before Polyverse, Archis served time at Amazon on Search Experience, where he handled the on-call duty for Black Friday weekend three years in a row, and did a significant amount of reliability, scaling, prediction and stability work for the fleets. Among other contributions, he helped migrate a major tier-1 service to server-less architecture before it was a word, built the first iteration of the tier-1 Amazon's Choice service for Alexa, helped launch AmazonSmile, and patented a method to measure user-perceived latency of web pages, to ensure nobody could "game the system" by reporting convenient metrics.

Archis got his start in the tech world when he was selected among the top 20 student technologists across all of India, for the Code4Bill contest (held by Bill Gates), and worked on Live Mesh for Ray Ozzie where he was doing NoSQL and REST before they were a thing. He was a fan of Cosmos before it was sexy.

Format of the Startup Sessions:
The startup sessions will have a topic and an area expert providing key insights and knowledge regarding the topic in a 20-30 minute seminar format. After the main seminar, a speaker from the Entrepreneurial Law Clinic from the UW School of Law will present "Funding 101" Afterwards, the attendees will break into working sessions to engage with the topic as it relates to them.

All seminars will be video captured and live streamed. Light refreshments will be served. These sessions are open to the public and you do not have to be currently affiliated with UW or a startup to join.

We hope to see you there!
