Speaker profile

Philippe Cases

CEO - Topio Networks

I am the Co-Founder and CEO of Topio Networks, an industry catalyst accelerating the formation of markets by creating communities. Topio Networks has been tracking IOT and Edge Computing since its inception, has a community of 1.2 million professionals dedicated to making the business of smart connected objects a reality, and organizes events such as Edge Computing World and Intelligent Infrastructure.

In addition to IOT/Edge Computing, I specialize my practice in accelerating the emergence of anything “Edge Native” helping organizations define their positioning, promote their thought leadership, and reach out to the community for feedback. I am also a frequent speaker at industry conferences and run the weekly Topio Networks webinar.

Prior to Topio, I was a General Partner of venture funds and made investments consistently as a Venture Capitalist in data technology with companies such as RIghtpoint (Acq. by e.piphany) , Adknowledge (Acq. by CMGI), Inquira (Acq, by Oracle), Vue Technology (Acq. by Sensormatic), Jaspersoft (Acq. by Tibco), Silk Technology (Acq. By Palantir), and Akili Interactive (AKLI).

As part of being an investor, I spotted SaaS as a trend in 1997 and made my first investments in the space then. Following the early 2000 meltdown, I developed a model to spot financial trends and evaluate the timing of investment opportunities. This approach contributed to my firm top decile fund return in the two funds I was involved with. The landscapes that you are seeing now are directly inherited from this methodology.
