Arjun Narayan grew up in India, programming as a kid. He came to America for college, thrown into the scene cold but really liked it. He studied computer science at Williams College in Massachusetts, and did his PHD at Penn, focusing on distributed systems, security, privacy and scalability. His doctorate taught him how to write at length, but out of the norm, he knew early on he didn’t want to be an academic.
He is married, with a young son – and he really enjoys being a father. Today, his life consists of his startup and his young family, which are about the same age.
As he was as grad student doing his PHD, he came across a set of papers written by his co-founder – about a more capable, incremental compute engine. After several years of persuasion, Arjun convinced him that they needed to start a company to commercialize the solution.
This is the creation story of Materialize.
