Anthony Gold is a serial entrepreneur, investor, author, advisor, and board member for several companies in the Philadelphia region – both for-profit and non-profit. He began his career designing supercomputers for Unisys, then created an open-source software and services startup that was recognized by the industry as the “largest open source systems integrator in the world.” Anthony was honored to be named one of the Top Leaders in Open Source Business by LinuxWorld magazine. He has eight patents around enterprise hardware and software design, and his ES7000 enterprise server was entered into the Guinness Book of World Records for hosting the largest number of concurrent gamers at the Dreamhack gaming conference.
He subsequently built and ran a healthcare company focused on connecting patients and caregivers around a model of collaborative health, partnering with some of the top physicians in the world. To help drive an improved startup ecosystem in the Philadelphia suburbs, Anthony launched Liberty Valley Initiative, a non-profit for connecting entrepreneurs with mentors, resources, and investors. His latest co-venture is a wearable tech company called ROAR for Good focused on reducing the incidence of attacks against women and addressing the underlying causes of violence. And in his blog, Anthony’s Desk, he shares insights for helping both young professionals and seasoned executives in their careers.
