Panoplos started his career as an embedded systems engineer, taking on various development and technical consulting roles at a world-renowned cellular handset manufacturer, contributing to projects that would prove to change the face of the wireless industry. After achieving much success in the wireless space, Panoplos joined a US biometrics start-up and proved a key force of the company in developing the nascent market. Through these efforts, Panoplos helped grow the company to a global success and an eventual IPO. With this experience under his belt, Panoplos made a transition from engineering to marketing and business development, and eventually founded a small consulting firm out of APAC with a vision to promote entrepreneurship in the region, jointly develop breakthrough technologies and incubate regionally based start-ups from concept to proven businesses with a global reach. Panoplos is also an avid investor and active day trader with more than 10 years of experience trading in equities, options and futures, and has partaken in several successful private equity investments in a wide range of industries. Participating in Seeking Alpha, Panaplos hopes to share with the community the many insights he has gained over the years of evaluating numerous companies and investment concepts with respectable levels of success.
