John Curlander
Co-founder and CEO John has had a successful career as a scientist and entrepreneur. His passion for mapping was evident at an early age when he led the data processing team at the NASA Jet Propulsion Laboratory in mapping the planet Venus in the '90s. At that time, the Venus image map was actually more complete than any map of the earth. John went on to establish Vexcel Corporation as a worldwide leader in mapping and remote sensing. As President and CEO, he led the company to develop satellite ground stations, 3D mapping software and aerial photographic cameras. Vexcel was ultimately bought by Microsoft to become the core of its on-line mapping service. After a number of years as a General Manager at Microsoft working on mobile technologies and cloud services for retailers, he joined Boulder Ventures as an EIR where the initial ideas for Pindrop were formed.
