Todd Mostak

Todd Mostak, is the founder and CEO of MapD, a pioneer in building GPU-tuned analytics and visualization applications for the enterprise. Mostak conceived of the idea of using GPUs to accelerate the extraction of insights from large datasets while conducting his Harvard graduate research on the role of Twitter in the Arab Spring. Frustrated by the capabilities of conventional technologies to allow for the interactive exploration of these multimillion-row datasets, Mostak built one of the first GPU-based databases.

Upon completion of his studies at Harvard, Mostak joined MIT as a research fellow at the computer science and artificial intelligence laboratory, focusing on GPU databases and visualization before founding the company in late 2013.

Mostak received his undergraduate degree from the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill in economics and anthropology.
