Carl Freer: An Entrepreneur Whose Strong Roots Guarantee a Bright Future
To make it in the cut-throat world of business, you need a mindset that is not just geared towards success but the current equivalent of a Midas touch. This combination is quite rare as evidenced by the very few start-ups that actually make a name for themselves or are even able to be profitable. To get a startup from zero to profits, a special type of businessman needs to be at the helm, guiding the company to greater heights.
For the many companies that he has led to great success, Carl Freer is the man with the Midas touch. In a career spanning over 30 years, little he has done has led to abject failure. Like everyone else seeking to make a way through the business world, he has met his share of challenges, but Carl Johan Freer has time and again demonstrated his ability to re-invent himself, bringing back the magic necessary to take him back to the top. In the 1990s, he pioneered video streaming software, long before anyone could envision how this piece of technology would affect the way we consume media in the form of videos. One of his greatest achievements came in 2002 when he co-founded the American company Tiger Telematics that created the hand-held gaming console, Gizmondo.
Before the company was eventually dissolved in 2006, it had, under his leadership raised over £160 million and reached a market cap of $2 billion.
The dissolution of Tiger Telematics did not mark the end for his innovative genius. In 2010, Carl Johan Freer founded Aluminaid a bio-tech company that is set to change how the world treats burn wounds. The product, Aluminaid is a burn dressing that is used to alleviate pain and ensure the quick healing of first and second-degree burns. Under his leadership the company has secured many medical patents, received approval by regulatory bodies around the world and is already on use, sold over the counter in many countries.
His vast experiences, both good and bad, have prepared Carl J Freer for a lifetime of innovations that are tailored to improve how we do business in the future. Watopedia is expected to demonstrate just how far he has come as an innovator and entrepreneur.
While a top executive and Magitech, he developed, as part of the company’s portfolio a mobile augmented reality platform that was later acquired by Qualcomm. He continued his work with mobile systems while at ULab, creating a system that allows users to make purchases instantaneously on their mobile devices.
All these achievements that have spanned a long and illustrious career were all just in preparation for his biggest venture yet, Watopedia, an AI platform that will out-match any others in the market today. Expected to launch in early 2018, Watopedia is Carl Johan Freer’s greatest venture. He is working with some of the world’s leading data scientist and machine learning experts to ensure that Watopedia develops the latest generation of neural networks capable of reaching faster and more accurate results as compared to other solutions in the current market.
