Keynote Speaker: Bob Young

Bob Young, a Hamilton native and successful technology entrepreneur, is the founder of Vernon Computer Rentals, Red Hat Inc, and Lulu Press Inc., among others.  A recent start-up, Lulu Press Inc,,  is an  online print-on-demand, self-publishing and distribution platform based out of Raleigh, North Carolina. The company continues to create new and exciting ways of delivering more knowledge at lower cost to the global education oriented consumer.

In 1994, his work on open source software led to his co-founding of Red Hat Inc, now a NYSE traded company. As Co-founder and formerly CEO and Chairman of Red Hat from 1993-2000, Young was responsible for the early success of the business. Red Hat is credited with driving the global, industry-wide adoption of open source development practices. Young’s efforts developing Red Hat into a household name have won him prestigious honors such as Business Week Magazine’s “Top Entrepreneurs” in 1999.
