A FIRESIDE CHAT WITH ADAM AU
SERIAL ENTREPRENEUR & ANGEL INVESTOR
Please join us to learn how one fellow Hong Kong University alumni; blessed with a sharp intellect, brought up with good work ethics, armed with an appetite to take risks, and instilled with an urgency to succeed, has persevered and attained his “American Dream“.
In 1979, with a BSEE degree in hand, Adam started his working career in Hong Kong as the 9th employee of Hewlett-Packard, a pioneering Silicon Valley tech company. He subsequently obtained a MSEE degree from the University of Wisconsin.
In the ensuing years, he founded/co-founded and successfully sold 3 technology companies in the IT space.
Netreon - a private storage management company acquired by Computer Associates (CA, Inc.)
AUCO – a private embedded directory and networking company acquired by Peerless System Corp. (PRLS).
Centrify - a provider of modern privileged access management (PAM) solutions based on Zero Trust principles to enable digital transformation at scale. With over 60% of the Fortune 50 as customers, the company was acquired by Thoma Bravo (a private equity firm) in 2018, who then subsequently sold it to TPG (an investment company).
