Emil Eifrem is CEO and co-founder of Neo Technology. Previously CTO of Sweden’s Windh AB, where he headed up the development of highly complex information architectures for Enterprise Content Management Systems, Emil famously sketched out what today is known as the property graph model on a flight to Mumbai in 2000. Since then Emil has devoted his professional life to building and evangelizing graph databases, and jokes that as a result he plans to save the world through graphs and own Larry Ellison’s yacht by the end of the decade. He is a frequent conference speaker and a well-known author and blogger on NoSQL and graph databases, as well as co-author of the agreed Bible on graph databases, O’Reilly’s Graph Databases.www.neo4j.com
