Jeremy Hitchcock has been building mission driven companies, teams, and ecosystems from New Hampshire and Greater Boston for the past 15 years.
From a Worcester Polytechnic Institute dorm room in 2001, Jeremy founded Dyn, an Internet infrastructure through the global routing/DNS system. After graduating with a B.S. in Management Information Systems and growing Dyn to 500 people, $100mm of ARR, and raising $100mm of growth capital, Jeremy left as CEO in 2016. The company was acquired by Oracle in 2017.
Jeremy’s focus is now on Minim, an AI-driven WiFi management and IoT security platform for service providers. Minim provides operators and their subscribers with cutting-edge fingerprinting, security and network control. The company was inspired by the famous Mirai DDoS against Dyn in 2016 which temporarily disabled parts of the Internet. That attack was the largest DDoS ever and launched from IoT devices.
