FORA.tv Speaker - Mar Hershenson
Mar is CEO and co-founder of Revel Touch, the first "touch-first" e-commerce platform. Mar founded the company on the belief that mobile commerce will soon dominate retail at-home and in-store. The Revel Touch Merchandising Suite was built on the further belief that touch-based computing demands a re-conception of the shopping experience. The platform launched last November and early results show a 1.5-4x multiple on all core e-commerce metrics.
Prior to founding Revel Touch, Mar revolutionized the semiconductor industry through her work with analog circuit design. She received the prestigious TR100 Young Investigator Award from MIT and a Fast 50 Award from Fast Company. She was also named one of the top 10 women in microelectronics by EETimes and received the prestigious Marie Pistilli Women in EDA lifetime achievement award. In 2012, Mar won the Silicon Valley/San Jose Business Journal’s Women of Influence Award for her contributions to business, technology and her involvement in the community.
Mar is also a Consulting Professor at Stanford University, teaching analog circuit design courses. Mar graduated with honors with a B.S. in electrical engineering from the Universidad Pontificia de Comillas in Madrid, Spain, and received her M.S. and Ph.D. degrees in electrical engineering from Stanford University. She has been awarded eight patents and has several other patents pending.
