How Edgeless Systems started

Felix Schuster and Thomas Tendyck, co-founders of Edgeless Systems, couldn’t be a better match. Having studied together at Ruhr University Bochum, they have known each other for a long time. Felix (CEO) was one of the first researchers in confidential computing in 2015 at Microsoft Research. As a Research and Development Engineer at a Cybersecurity firm in Bochum, Thomas has proven strong domain expertise. As distinguished experts in the field, the team is hosting the yearly Open Confidential Computing Conference (OC3), one of the leading conferences in the confidential computing space.
