Marcus Rydberg
Co-Founder and Lead Developer | Luminare

Marcus is the co-founder and lead developer of Luminare, where he is writing code to save lives. Marcus has been programming for 25 years since the age of ten, most of which has been spent in the business intelligence industry in Stockholm focusing on data mining, search engines, and web crawling. He has been head-hunted by the Royal Institute of Technology (the MIT of Sweden) twice, and might go back there someday (yeah right…). He started his first company, Artilect, in 2008—focusing on data collection and refinement, with products including services for News Monitoring and normalization of semi-structured data. Some prominent customers included a large government agency and The Confederation of Swedish Enterprise.

Marcus loves rapid prototyping, proving that things are possible, and spending a lot of time thinking about how to do things better.
