PA3 "Second Tuesdays" Propeller

MAY 2016 PROPELLER
Tuesday, May 10th, 2016 - 6pm

SPEAKER:  MARK TANNER ‘12

After graduating from Princeton in 2012, Mark spent a year at Google coordinating major sports partnerships for YouTube and Google+.  While at Google, he developed a passion for building and designing products.  In late 2013, Mark left Google and joined the team that launched Movo. 

Movo designed and manufactured a fully customizable activity tracker for companies looking to engage employees around the importance of health and wellness.  Over the course of two years, Movo built a client roster of major companies including, Subway, UBS, Johnson and Johnson, Princeton University and Burger King. 

As CEO and Co-Founder, Mark designed Movo’s hardware and software products, built an efficient supply chain in China, oversaw Movo’s global distribution center in Indianapolis and constructed and contributed to an effective sales and marketing strategy.

After two years of work and over 10,000 devices sold, Movo hit a crossroads.  Their lean team and limited resources made it difficult to sustain their success and scale their operation.  With market leaders struggling in the space, the challenges began to overwhelm the investors who ultimately decided to wind the operation down. 

Mark is eager to share his story as a cautionary tale of fast growth in a competitive sector.

First Friday Lunch - May 6, 2016

Join us for First Fridays, a monthly recurring event for undergraduate and graduate Princeton alumni, graduate students, and parents.  On the first Friday of each month, area alumni and their guests will meet to enjoy a prix fixe luncheon at the Nassau Club in downtown Princeton.  As a special bonus for PA3, a Princeton University PhD candidate will present his/her work to the group in this informal setting.  Topics vary monthly and are always interesting!  Have a look at our impressive roster of previous luncheons.


James Smith, PhD Candidate in GeosciencesOn Friday, May 6th, 2016, we will be joined by James A. Smith, a PhD Candidate in the Department of Geosciences Seismologists now research datasets of unprecedented size and complexity. For example, we are imaging the Earth's interior using over 4,000 earthquakes recorded at over 3,000 stations across the globe. In order to effectively utilize these datasets in modern seismic workflows, the data must be sensibly organized and the computational resources efficiently used. In other words, what good is a supercomputer if you are always reading and writing data? James will discuss ASDF, a modern data format for seismology that offers new ways to exchange and query large datasets, reproduce results, and decrease the time to research.



As always, there is sure to be a lively discussion! Please join us.


Specially priced at $25/person (or $30 if you choose not to pay PA3's annual dues), lunch includes three courses, a complementary beverage (wine, beer, soft drink) and coffee/tea. Pre-registration is preferred.
