Andy Grove, an Intel Legend

Last week Andy Grove, for CEO and chairman of Intel, died at the age of 79. Grove leaves a legacy that will continue to shape the world's technology and will inspire innovators for generations to come. Today's blog post is a tribute to the man who gave so much to the world in the form of technology. 

Grove was born in Budapest, Hungry, where he survived Nazi occupation and Soviet repression before immigrating the United States. He graduated from the University of California at Berkeley before starting his career at Fairchild Semiconductor Research Laboratory in California. His mentor at the laboratory left to start a new venture called Intel, and Grove was the first hire. 

Grove spearheaded Intel's transition from memory chips to microprocessors, a move that changed the computing world and one that paved the way for the personal computing era, resulting in the company becoming a global technology giant. 

Grove also changed the way technology companies engaged with public officials, after recognising the importance of government policy. He battled for smart, forward-thinking legislative and regulatory polices that promoted technology in Washington DC, helping government leaders to understand the importance of technology innovation. 

More recently Grove battled for more resources to be given to science, technology, engineering and math (STEM) education and fought for stronger enforcement of software anti-piracy laws. 

It's impossible to overstate the importance and significance of Grove's work; he bridged the divide between Washington and Silicon Valley and hopefully, technology makers can continue to build on his success.
