In addition to his legendary career in Silicon Valley, Ray is best known for creating and selling the first Wafer Stepper (an industry standard piece of semiconductor manufacturing equipment), and for co-founding semiconductor company, Micrel (acquired by Microchip in 2015), which provides essential components for smartphones, consumer electronics and enterprise networks. So, from smart watches to drone technology and how the microchip has evolved-for better or for worse-he can also discuss how America now ranks 12th among industrialized nations for startups. Economics and public policy have stacked the deck against people who might otherwise start new businesses and bring new innovations to market. Being an "entrepreneur" for many has been redefined as subcontracting to Uber. Zinn can discuss:

Raymond D. "Ray" Zinn is an inventor, entrepreneur, and the longest serving CEO of a publicly traded company in Silicon Valley. He is best known for creating and selling the first Wafer Stepper (an industry standard piece of semiconductor manufacturing equipment), and for co-founding semiconductor company, Micrel (acquired by Microchip in 2015), which provides essential components for smartphones, consumer electronics and enterprise networks. He served as Chief Executive Officer, Chairman of its Board of Directors and President since Micrel's inception in 1978 until his retirement in August 2015. Zinn's philosophy on people, servant leadership, humanistic management and the ethics of corporate culture are credited with Micrel's nearly unbroken profitability. Zinn also holds over 20 patents for semiconductor design. A proud great-grandfather, he is actively-retired and mentoring entrepreneurs. More info can be found on Zinn's social media pages: Linked In (https://www.linkedin.com/in/rayzinn) and Twitter (https://twitter.com/Ray_Zinn_) and at ToughThingsFirst.com.

The precise recipe for success may change ? for example, my 32-year-old company, Cypress Semiconductor, used venture funding, while Zinn preached and achieved financial independence ? but Zinn shows how startups must have and truly practice their core values to succeed." -T.J. Rodgers, President & CEO, Cypress Semiconductor Corp
"Ray Zinn has chronicled the discipline, the cultural foundation blocks and the tough decisions required of a successful start-up. Ray explains how, "discipline defines success" under his four principles: Focus, Short Time Frames, Frugality and Being the Best." -Michael Shepherd, President and CEO, Bank of the West
"Ray Zinn's journey is not only a genuine Silicon Valley success story but also a remarkable life story from which nearly anyone can draw important lessons. In Tough Things First, Ray explores not only the "how-to" aspects of building a company but also the mindset and character traits ? discipline, intense focus and attention to detail ? needed for lasting entrepreneurial success. Most importantly, in an era when success is too often defined by publicity, speedy "exits" and financial windfalls, Ray reminds us that the fulfillment of building a thriving, enduring enterprise is the reward that a true entrepreneur seeks."
...
"If you stitch Ray Zinn's life together and look at what he's achieved, despite the odds or the skepticism or the impediments that have been presented - doing a start-up business [without venture capital], his sudden vision impairment, the ups and downs of our industry.
