MIT Enterprise Forum of Texas and the University of Houston – Central Campus present a MIT Enterprise Forum Flagship Program with Rod Canion Thursday, June 5.
Russ Capper, from the Houston Business Makers Radio Show, will interview Rod Canion (pictured), the founder of Compaq Computer, to discuss the journey and the challenges of creating one of the most successful and fastest growing personal computer companies.
In their first year of business, Compaq had $111 million dollars in revenue….a world record. Creating compatibility with the IBM PC and giving away for free the technology to create advanced open industry standards for personal computers was key to Compaq's success.
It almost did not happen.
Please join the MIT Enterprise Forum of Texas and the University of Houston Bauer College of Business to hear this amazing Houston Success Story.
The audience will have the opportunity to ask questions during the question and answer period. Rod Canion, a University of Houston graduate, will be available for a book signing of his new book about Compaq, "Open", after the program.
