Rodolfo’s Manual of Operations

Rodolfo’s Manual of Operations

📍 Based in London

I’m on Twitter, Bluesky, and Mastodon . My email is my first name at

I have founded a new tech startup in 2021, it’s in stealth, it’s about semiconductors, and we have some VC funding.

My background is artificial intelligence, semiconductors, video games, cybersecurity, and defense. I do not understand anything about life sciences and biotech. Within these boundaries I am happy to help anyone that is starting their company, especially younger people without capital and access to an investor network, contact me and I will go the extra mile to give you a bit of my time to help.

I have been blogging since 2001 on Whilst in Arrakis, but if I write two posts a year it’s a miracle and it’s mostly musings. The corporate stuff is usually on Medium.

I am an entrepreneur-in-residence at Conception X and assist PhD students become venture scientists and start companies based off their research. We only invest inside our cohort in partnership with XTX Ventures, and I do not make angel investments.

I am also humbled to have been asked to mentor at DeepCore (SoftBank’s AI accelerator in Tokyo) but despite my enthusiasm they are ok with zoom calls and don’t pay me to travel there.

I play Europa Universalis 4 and I think you should, too.
