Biography

Nolan Bushnell is a technology pioneer, entrepreneur, engineer and recently, a published author. He is best known as the founder of Atari Corporation and Chuck E. Cheese’s Pizza Time Theater. Often cited as the Father of the video game industry, Mr. Bushnell introduced videogames to the masses with “Pong” and many other legendary games, as well as the home videogame console system with multiple game cartridges.

Over the past four decades, Bushnell has been a prolific entrepreneur, founding numerous companies, including: Catalyst Technologies, the first technology incubator; Etak, the first car navigation system whose mapping is still the basis for car navigation systems today; Androbot, a personal robotics company; and ByVideo, the first online ordering system, which allowed customers to order and pay for product from kiosks. In the process, he pioneered many of the workplace innovations that have long made Silicon Valley a magnet for creative talent.

With his latest startup, BrainRush, he is intent on fixing education with software that uses gamification principles to “addict” students to learning.

Nolan Bushnell famously was also the first and only boss Steve Jobs ever had when he worked at Atari. In Walter Isaacson’s book Steve Jobs, Nolan is described as one of the most important mentors and influences in Steve’s life. Nolan published his first book in 2013, Finding the Next Steve Jobs. In it he explains how to find, hire and nurture creative people.
