TechNexus Names Steve Subar an Entrepreneur-in-Residence

Executive Brings Mobile and Security Success Experience

CHICAGO, IL--(Marketwired - Sep 19, 2013) - TechNexus, a venture collaborative, today named Steve Subar a member of its Entrepreneur-in-Residence program ("EiR").

"Our EiR program is a unique resource available to businesses working in the incubator at TechNexus," explained Terry Howerton, co-founder. "By having experts like Steve on staff, they're able to serve as real, ongoing contributors to entrepreneurial projects, take the lead on developing projects on our behalf for corporate clients, and provide real-world thought leadership to all of the participants in our innovation ecosystem."

"I'm excited about the ventures we're building at TechNexus," said Subar. "As an EiR, I have the unique opportunity to step beyond the traditional job of mentorship and more actively match entrepreneurs with the challenges and opportunities that established companies face, as well as pair them with like-minded angels and VC investors." 

Subar is a seasoned entrepreneur and business-builder. As founder and CEO of OK Labs, he led it to become the leading provider of mobile virtualization software, deployed on more than 1.5 billion devices, and a successful acquisition by General Dynamics in 2012. He also co-founded Click-and-Done, a pioneer in e-business infrastructure and consumer client software for electronic billing, Relavis Corporation, a leading publisher of relational database tools used to accelerate application design, development and implementation, and founded z2m4 inc., a boutique management consulting company for venture capital investors and their portfolio companies.

Steve is a frequent guest lecturer and moderator at numerous industry forums and conferences, and currently sits on the advisory board for the Northwestern University Center for Innovation, and the board of the Big Idea Forum.

TechNexus is a venture collaborative that assembles entrepreneurs, engineers, and disruptive technologies so that companies can remain or become industry leaders. Its tech incubator will be Chicago's newest workspace when completed in October, and will anchor a nascent, million sq-ft innovation district at the Civic Opera House. The TechNexus EiR program is one of the programs that bring the collaborative's global networks of experience and talent to the ventures it curates for its corporate and entrepreneurial clients.
