President, Ring Solutions
As a successful serial entrepreneur, Mike Harris has founded or led numerous venture-backed technology companies to successful exits, including a NASDAQ IPO. As the President of Ring Solutions, Mike built and continues to manage the team behind Ring Alarm, harnessing his years of experience and skill. Mike’s start-up, AnySource Media, was acquired by DivX in August of 2009. The original embedded software developed by AnySource still serves as the foundation for DivX TV, which can be found on LG’s line of connected Blu-Ray players. Just as AnySource provided core technology for “connected TV,” Mike’s vision for Ring is to provide the core technology for the “connected smart home” to expand Ring customers’ Rings of Security.
Early in Mike’s career, he served as the founder and CTO of Ravisent Technologies Inc., a technology pioneer in the DVD industry. Mike oversaw the development and adoption of Ravisent’s technology by leading PC and consumer electronics manufacturers, ultimately achieving a $1B valuation on the NASDAQ market. Ravisent was ultimately acquired by STMicroelectronics, and Mike became its Group Vice President, Global Software Strategy. After STMicroelectronics, Mike served as President of Digital 5, a venture-backed software provider enabling streaming media content within the connected home. Later, Mike served as President of OpenPeak, a provider of software for home media control.
Mike graduated from Purdue University with a degree in Computer and Electrical Engineering. Outside of the office, Mike enjoys spending his time with his family at home in Phoenixville, Pennsylvania.
