ABOUT ANDY ORY:
Andy Ory co-founded Acme Packet as a Boston-based tech start-up in 2000 and then spearheaded the company’s growth to more than 100 countries. Acme Packet was sold to Oracle earlier this year for $2.1 billion. Andy left Oracle in August.
Andy served as President and CEO of Acme Packet, which enabled service providers and enterprises worldwide to harness the power of interactive voice, video and unified communications over internet protocol networks – a new product category at the time- before its sale earlier this year to Oracle. After graduating from Harvard University, Andy founded Priority Call Management, Inc. at 24 years old, a company that produced network-based solutions that allowed service providers to offer prepaid calling, enhanced messaging and one-number services. The company was later sold to the LHS Group.
Andy currently serves on the board of the Thinking Phone Networks Board of Directors, a cloud-based communications service provider based in Cambridge. He is a member of G20 Ventures, Boston - not a typical VC partnership but a community of 20 like-minded technology pioneers who have made their mark, but have the experience, passion and humility necessary to help others succeed. The G20's investment focus is on early-stage, east coast (Boston, NYC, Raleigh), enterprise software, infrastructure and Internet solutions. They prefer technology risk to market risk, and won't invest in 100% consumer-facing businesses.
