Title: Co-Founder and CEO

Georg is the co-Founder and CEO of FiftyThree, which started with the belief that people are at their best when they create. Our mission is to put the essential tools for creation within arm's reach. FiftyThree are the makers of Paper (Apple's 2012 iPad App of the Year), and the widely-acclaimed Pencil, the most natural and expressive tool for getting ideas on Paper. In his role Georg connects the dots between engineering, design and business. Before starting FiftyThree, he co-founded the Pioneer Studios, a design venture fund, where he led the incubation of Microsoft Courier. He shipped graphic tools in PowerPoint, Word, Excel, and started a photo frame business with Samsung. While at Microsoft Research he published seminal work on computational photography. He learned his best lessons from teaching, modern dance, and preserving a historic site in Germany. He holds a B.S. from Columbia in Computer Engineering and Economics, and a M.S. in Electrical Engineering with a concentration in Product Design from Stanford.
