The Bits & Bytes Series - Lars Rasmussen

Hosted by Alki Giavridis

Today’s guest is Lars Rasmussen, serial Entrepreneur and father of a product that many of us can’t live without - Google Maps. Lars created the mapping technology with his brother and sold it to Google before becoming Lead Engineer of the Google Maps team for six years. He then went on to join Facebook as its Director of Engineering. Today, he is working on the exciting music startup “Weav Music”, which seamlessly adapts a song’s tempo to the user’s activity level without distorting the music.

Lars talks us through his journey of building Google Maps out of the ashes of the Dot-com bubble and the roadblocks he faced along the way. He also discusses how his new startup will revolutionise the way we listen, dance, and perform;) to music...but we don't want to give too much away. Tune in to hear the rest!
