About Rupert Meghnot

Started my first business in college, and have been an entrepreneur since. Originally a poli sci major, I have an M.B.A. from Rollins College, and patents in consumer electronics, motion simulation and virtual reality. I taught at the university level for 12+ years (University of Central Florida undergrad and Full Sail University Masters degree levels), the former students of which are now managing $billions in video game IP. Having helped 350+ startups (mostly tech), I'm now incubating game/simulation/VR startups via Burnout Game Ventures, LLC, serve on several Boards, and am a 1 Million Cups-Orlando co-organizer.
