Brian, this is fantastic news! Best of luck to you and Max! And I also hope that past EDA journalists, even in their corporate roles, will helps with this. How severely the EDA sector is undervalued strikes me when I attend startup events in Montreal, where Space Codesign may be the only EDA company in town, and probably between Ottawa, Ontario and Dublin, Ireland (home of Duolog). Folks in mobile, social, clean tech and smart grid (just to name a few areas that touch electronics) do appreciate the number and/or scale of devices that they deal with, even if they are software developers who react to the platforms they are offered to work on (PC's, servers, smartphones, etc.). Experienced executives are stunned to learn that the entire EDA sector is striving to regain $5 Billion in annual revenues, rather than that figure being a future projection just for our startup alone! Besides revenues, another thing that the EDA sector needs to regain is the excitement that it once had, which I see across the startup sector. After all, the Big 3 trace back to maybe two dozen people in the Bay Area and Portland, Oregon. That has severe impact for the sector in attracting interest and talent. I feel that the Great Recession didn't cause a brain drain out of EDA from job cuts, but merely accelerated a process that was ongoing. People who have found their way to areas like web startups or management consulting are probably never coming back, if asked. Among former EDA people making a difference elsewhere are Mike Grandinetti (Viewlogic) who is now a startup investor and advisor (check out his talk from TED Halifax, Nova Scotia on YouTube) and Sean Murphy, who was an influential customer while at Cisco, now an angel investor and startup blogger.
