Joshua Montgomery is an entrepreneur and Air Force officer who hails from Lawrence, KS.
He spent the 2000’s developing ultra-high-speed broadband service in his home town where he was providing gigabit fiber-to-the-home before Google made it cool.
In 2015 Joshua co-founded Mycroft AI to develop an open source voice assistant and smart speaker that customers could access, change, hack and customize - privately. In 2016 Amazon made this cool.
Most recently Joshua is a children’s book author who published “Mycroft and the Patent Trolls” to help educate both children and lawmakers on how patent trolls extort entrepreneurs.
