Tom Stevens is CEO and Co-founder of Tombot, Inc. Tombot was inspired by Tom’s mother who after she was diagnosed with Alzheimer’s dementia, Tom had to take away her dog for safety reasons. That heart-wrenching event launched him on a multi-year research and education journey to solve his mother’s problem, only to learn that her story is shared by tens of millions of other seniors with dementia, and about 1 billion people in total, who cannot safely or practically care for a live animal due to a health adversity. Tom launched Tombot in 2017 to help these people. Prior to Tombot, Tom and his two partners built ACT Litigation Services into one of the world’s leading e-discovery companies. ACT was successfully acquired in 2011 by DiscoverReady. Tom has spent more than 35 years in senior positions in the high tech field. Tom has a Master’s of Science in Management from Stanford Graduate School of Business, and a Bachelor of Arts in Political Science from UCLA. Married with three children, Tom attempts to play music with his vastly more talented wife, and enjoys playing golf, tennis, and coaching youth sports.
