CTO & Co-founder, Weav Music
Originally from Denmark, Lars Rasmussen is the co-founder and CTO of Weav Music in New York City. Lars holds a PhD in theoretical computer science from UC Berkeley, and was most recently a director of engineering for Facebook. In 2004, Lars and his brother Jens sold their mapping startup Where 2 Tech to Google. Lars became the lead engineer on the team that created Google Maps and worked out of Google�s Sydney-based office until joining Facebook in late 2010. Lars has probably the world�s least developed sense of direction and consistently types faster than he can spell. In his copious spare time, he enjoys advising early-stage startups, and coffee.
