Our first guest today is Dan Scarfe, CEO of XRAI Glass, a Toronto-based company. He discusses the latest news from revolutionary XRAI Glass software. The trailblazing tech company, whose software has allowed deaf people to ‘see’ conversations as subtitles using “Augmented Reality Glasses,” has launched three New Features.
Mr. Scarfe is a seasoned entrepreneur who has run IT companies for almost 20 years. Dan was a leader in “the Cloud” before it was even called the Cloud and has published three books on Microsoft Azure. He grew his company Dot Net Solutions from two people to 600, raising over $50m of venture capital and twice winning Microsoft Country Partner of the Year, before selling the business to Cognizant in the summer of 2020 in a deal worth hundreds of millions of US dollars. Dan loves to envisage the positive, transformational impact technology can have on people’s lives. Born and brought up in the UK, Dan now lives in Toronto. XRAI Glass Founder and CEO Dan Scarfe, one of the world’s leading tech entrepreneurs, came up with the idea when looking for ways to talk to his 97-year-old grandfather, who had become increasingly deaf.
