Conor Madigan, Phd

Co-Founder-in-Residence

Conor’s passion is building technologies, products, teams, and companies in the “tough/frontier” tech space. In the first part of his career he focused on R&D of novel electronic and optoelectronic materials and devices. From 2008 to 2020 he founded and built his first start-up Kateeva into a global leader in the OLED display manufacturing equipment space – if you have an iPhone or Galaxy cell phone, the display was probably made using Kateeva equipment. He continues to support Kateeva as an adviser and Board Director.  Conor joined DVL in November of 2020 to develop revolutionary new businesses, with interests spanning artificial intelligence, environment, and health.  He also works with two non-profits, as a board member of EdMo (which provides online and in-person STEM education programs with an emphasis on social equity) and as an advisory board member of StartOut (which supports the LGBT entrepreneur community.) He has a B.S.E. from Princeton and an M.S. and Ph.D. from MIT, all in Electrical Engineering.
