Bob Nunn is CEO of battery-free startup Everactive, a deep tech company that self-powers IoT devices. They have pioneered ultra-low-power circuits, and we talked a lot about the company's history, evolution and current status on the show. Have you ever realized how big of a market industrial steam trap monitoring is?!? Bob considers Everactive the biggest opportunity of his career, by far, as this market grows exponentially in the coming years.
Bob calls himself a “trust-first” manager and we talked about that philosophy, as it has helped his team to thrive during the pandemic, even as they’ve had to go remote, like many other companies. Bob shared his operating principles as a 30 year executive, as well as the qualities he looks for in other company leaders.
Bob has worked successfully with startups for over 30 years across various stages. He’s also raised a lot of capital, nearly $100M with Everactive alone. He previously ran a company, Fulcrum Microsystems, which he successfully sold to Intel, and spent several years there in senior roles.
Bob is also a fellow UCLA Bruin. There was so much wisdom and perspective from this accomplished business executive in the episode - enjoy it!
