Boris Bogatin
CEO, NearVerse

Website | @@BB_iojbegun

Boris Bogatin founded NearVerse in late 2008 as a proximity Internet company and heads up the company as the CEO. NearVerse is the maker of LoKast, an instant social network for the physical world - allowing users to easily connect with others right next to them, share media, and jointly experience their physical settings. NearVerse uses its proximity platform to uniquely power LoKast and proximity Internet, leveraging 802.11 D2D tech and carrier networks in a unified system, to serve up the best-of-breed content delivery, location ID and proximity context, and other proximity functionality.

Previously, Boris helped start LightSquared and was the VP of Corporate Development and Technology Strategy for the company. Boris helped grow LightSquared from a $200 million company at its start into a U.S. wholesale, all-LTE wireless network powering the wireless offers of some of the biggest Internet and consumer companies in U.S. Boris graduated from the University of Pennsylvania with finance, operations management, and systems engineering degrees. In his spare time, he enjoys teaching his 3 year old son calculus and doing stuff in the physical world (mostly as an excuse to multitask).
