About the event
Welcome to TSL's Global Startup Series.
In this series, we explore the global startup arena and delve into what startups around the world are doing. Each session, we chat with a startup from different parts of the world to discuss:
- How this "global pandemic" is affecting them in their country base
- How this has impacted working across international borders
- The future of global businesses
- The reality of pivoting and adapting
If you are looking at doing business across borders or want to know how startups across the world are faring, then this series is for you. Join us every Wednesday for TSL's Global Startup Series.
MEET THIS WEEK'S GLOBAL STARTUP:
Justin Samuel, CTO & Founder, Less Bits Justin Samuel, founder of Less Bits, began his career in 2001 as a self-taught PHP developer. A few years later, he went back to school to study computer science which took him on the path towards security research and academia. During this time, he identified vulnerabilities in all Linux packages managers and earned a National Science Foundation fellowship to fund his grad school research. A few years into a Ph.D., he realized he was not an academic at heart. He wanted to create and have a positive impact, and so, he created Less Bits.
A bit about Less Bits Less Bits was created in 2013 with a vision to create products that solve problems in the hosting industry. With a focus on simplicity and without sacrificing speed, performance, and reliability, Less Bits began with ServerPilot. ServerPilot is a modern server management solution optimized for WordPress and PHP. Less Bits has since expanded into web hosting with HostLaunch, cybersecurity with HeatShield, and site migration with DataShuttle. This is just the beginning for Less Bits, the company aims to continue creating new products, innovate their existing products, and solve problems in the hosting industry.
