Rapha Goyran

Software Engineer

I love building stuff. My first significant build as a kid was a balsa wood glider. It had a Clark Y airfoil, which made it easier to build the wing but had a poor gliding ratio. This had to be optimized, said the 12-year-old. Over the years, this evolved into an obsession about how to build the most performant glider wings. That got me into many other seemingly unrelated things: drones, fertilizers (not for growing plants), solid-propellant rocket engines, computer programming, etc.

After getting my master’s degree in electrical engineering, I left France and went to work for Philips Ultrasound, over in Bothell, WA. There I worked as a software engineer but also got to learn about patents and even got a couple in my name. Through personal projects, business plan competitions and a series of startup jobs, I honed my entrepreneurial skills and even created a business to develop a marketplace matching software engineers to code repositories for clients, using complex sets of rules and metrics.  We ran out of funding but I ended up learning a ton. And next thing I know, someone is telling me there’s this company, Xinova, whose vision it is to be a place where funding, talent and clients would meet in order to solve problems. I simply could not believe no one had built such company before and this idea of being a sort of meta-venture got me hooked.
