Steve Mollenkopf, President and CEO of Qualcomm, will give grand keynote address, on day 1. With a background in electrical engineering, Mollenkopf holds patents in “power estimation and measurement, multi-standard transmitter system, and wireless communication transceiver technology.” He has spent his entire 20+ year career at Qualcomm. Previously, he led the chip set business at Qualcomm and helped make Qualcomm the world’s largest mobile chipset supplier and global leader in LTE technology. Mollenkopf also led the company’s largest acquisition of Atheros, purchased at $3.1 billion, a deal that helped expand Qualcomm’s business beyond smartphones and enabled and speeded adoption of Qualcomm’s technologies and platforms in new segments.
Qualcomm makes over $25 billion each year, in revenues, powering world’s smartphones and tablets. Qualcomm may not be a lean and mean startup, but it is a technology driven company. Mollenkopf is entrepreneurial in nature and a self-proclaimed gadget freak. Entrepreneurs at TiEcon will be waiting to hear Mollenkopf’s perspectives on opportunities in mobile space. Will he share any new industry leading innovations in the pipeline, at Qualcomm?
