Silicon Valley's Original Startup
HP Inc. CEO Dion Weisler formally launched the new HP Inc. on Nov. 2 by paying homage to Hewlett Packard's legendary founders, Bill Hewlett and David Packard.
"Bill Hewlett and David Packard started as friends," said Weisler. "They were technologists who looked towards creating the future. They challenged all of us to continue to make a larger contribution to society. Ultimately, they created a company that has made a profound impact on the world as we know it."
The embrace of the company's founders is part of the invent and reinvent culture of the "brand-new" HP Inc. -- Silicon Valley's original startup. Weisler, in fact, celebrated the launch with a dinner that included members of the Hewlett and Packard families.
Weisler spoke with CRN about the legacy, the launch and the future. Here is an excerpt.
