In the next few weeks we will bring you conversations with engineers-turned-entrepreneur Pedro Alves and Steve Paolini. Both are Silicon Valley-based entrepreneurs, who share what propelled them to start their companies and what they are working to solve.

Alves is the founder and CEO of Ople, a startup that uses Artificial Intelligence (AI) and big data. He was working on his PhD when he landed his first job at a tech company and thus began his journey of working in Silicon Valley. After working in a couple of companies Alves decided to start his own company called Ople.

Paolini is the President of Telelumen, a 10 year old company whose tagline is recording and playback of light. LED has been Paolini’s single-minded focus for nearly 30 years. His first job out of college was at Hewlett Packard where he got his start with a group that worked on LED. He worked at at Hewlett-Packard and its spin-off for 20 years before striking out on his own and becoming an entrepreneur. He shares how and why he studied engineering and why he became an entrepreneur.
