Greg J. Badros
Founder, Advisor, Innovator


I run Prepared Mind Innovations as the sole advisor and hacker. I lean on a network of friends and colleagues throughout the San Francisco Bay Area and the world. I bring 25 years of professional experience.

I earned my Ph.D. at the University of Washington where my Ph.D. thesis now serves as the foundation of the new smart layout engine in Apple's OS X and iOS. Since then, I spent over 6 years at Google (2003-2009) over 4 years at Facebook (2009-2013), and also had several small-company experiences.


My mission is to help startups and growth companies succeed, and succeed big! I'm broadly helping contribute technological advances that make the world more efficient and become a better place for us, for our children and beyond.


I'm currently working on a number of small projects spanning automobile automation, smart homes, consumer electronic devices, large scale computing infrastructure, sensors, and other areas. Stay tuned for open-source releases, contributions, products, and more.
