Jeff DyckAbout Jeff

Jeff Dyck is a Director of Engineering at Siemens and leads an R&D organization that develops machine learning software used for designing chips in the semiconductor industry. Prior to that, Jeff ran R&D at Solido, and was part of the leadership team that grew Solido from a pre-revenue start-up, to one of the fastest growing tech companies in North America, and through successful acquisition by Siemens. Jeff is also a founding board member of Co.Labs, Saskatchewan’s first technology incubator, and he works closely on strategy with many of the local start-up and Series A companies.

Presentation Overview

Solido’s disruptive product strategy produced a suite of well-differentiated software products and led to winning a customer base that includes most of the world’s top 40 semiconductor companies. This drove fast revenue growth (>50% annual growth for 6 years straight!), high product margins, and led to successful acquisition. This talk discusses Solido’s process for bringing disruptive products to market and for growing a business around this approach.
