Adrian Cable

Co-Founder & CTO/President

Adrian is responsible for Kaptivo’s technology and IP portfolio, driving the research and development effort behind the Company’s present and future product line. Adrian’s focus at Kaptivo is on user experience and bridging the gap between market needs and technology, combining his background in optics, image processing and collaboration with a passion for creating products he always wanted but didn’t exist. Adrian has a PhD from the University of Cambridge in novel display systems and micro-optics, and went on to develop electronic systems integrated into fabric at MIT. During the rare moments when Adrian is not working on Kaptivo, he likes to fly light aircraft, dive shipwrecks and deep reefs, and has on occasion been seen with his welding mask on creating steel installation art.

Steve Semenzato

CRO

Steve began changing the world selling useful software products working for Avid Technology setting up channels in Europe and the US. He has gone on to help define how we talk to our computers using voice recognition; how we find products using computer vision with our mobile cameras; and how we understand the world around us using AI software, before coming to Kaptivo. He is a graduate Mechanical Engineer with a practical mind but the heart of a true salesman. When he’s not finding channel partners for Kaptivo to enrich the digital meeting experience, Steve is disappearing off beaten tracks on his motorcycle, eating dishes prepared in his beloved outdoor kitchen, or building his next car!
