    Guy Kawasaki biography

    Apple veteran, entrepreneur, and venture-capital pioneer, technology speaker Guy Kawasaki has helped shape the modern global economy. Great brand ambassadors are seldom at a loss for words, and Kawasaki is no exception. In his many engagements as a keynote speaker, Guy Kawasaki blends inside stories, sage observations, and puckish humor.

    As Apple’s chief evangelist in the mid-1980s, Kawasaki helped developers take advantage of the Apple II’s revolutionary popularity. Practicing what he preached, Kawasaki then left Apple to launch ACIUS, a company that published database software for the Macintosh. ACIUS’s flagship product, 4th Dimension, is still in use. Additionally, he co-founded Fog City Software. Fog City created Emailer and LetterRip.

    By 1995, Apple’s fortunes were flagging, and the company called upon Kawasaki once more to rejuvenate its user base. He accomplished that in just two years, and in 1997 Kawasaki left again. Along with Craig Johnson and Rich Karlgaard, he started, an angel-investor matchmaking service. Now called Garage Technolog Ventures, the company is a full-spectrum venture capital firm.

    Above all, his successes at Apple had earned him a sterling reputation, and companies ranging from Google to Mercedes Benz have hired him as an ambassador. Currently, Kawasaki is Chief Evangelist at Canva, an online graphic design service.
