Robert Ross is the founder of StopSIMCrime.org, which is addressing the fast growing problem of fraudulent SIM swaps by mobile carriers leading to millions stolen from consumers and organizations. In October 2018, Rob became a $1M SIM swap victim and quickly realized an industry-wide effort could help highlight the problem, help victims and force carriers to change. The goals of StopSIMCrime are: (1) to raise awareness about fraudulent SIM swaps and their consequences, (2) to help victims by sharing resources as they often don't know where to turn or what to do, and (3) to effect change by helping with legal actions and advocating for stronger laws that force mobile carriers to stop giving control of our mobile service to criminals. Rob is also a veteran tech entrepreneur. After starting his career as an engineer at Apple, he led business development at several startups that got acquired and/or IPO’d, including Xamarin (acq by Microsoft), Gild (acq by Citadel), CRI (acq by Rambus), Zero G (acq by Flexera), Adero (acq by COLT), ValiCert (IPO, acq by Axway), Individual (IPO, acq by Thomson Reuters). Rob has led P&L and business development at these companies, developing deals with the top tech companies like Amazon, Google, Microsoft, Salesforce, Oracle, IBM, and the list goes on. His companies have been funded by top VCs including DFJ, Bessemer, August, CRV, Ignition, Insight and many others. Rob has invested in numerous prominent pre-ICO companies and projects.
