Lars Rasmussen—Creator of Google Maps and Google Wave

Founder Community is a Silicon Valley event series by founders, for founders. We aim to inspire, educate and connect entrepreneurs of all levels.

This is one you won’t want to miss! Lars Rasmussen earned a PhD in theoretical computer science from UC Berkley. In early 2003 Lars co-founded with his brother Jens a mapping related start up, Where 2 Technologies, which was acquired by Google in October 2004. Lars became the lead engineer on the team that created Google Maps. He worked out of Google’s Sydney-based office and his team was responsible for the ahead-of-its-time Google Wave launched at Google IO 2009. He then decided to do what many Googlers have done, joined Facebook in December 2010 as a Director of Engineering. Come listen to the personal story of this brilliant engineer and entrepreneur who has lead software engineering at two of the biggest web titans.

This event is brought to you in partnership with Advance – the largest global network for Australians and friends of Australia around the world.
