Eric Shapiro

Founder & Managing Partner

With his first computer program written in 1978 and his first software company making a profit before he could vote, Eric Shapiro has long been translating ideas into business value. IBM bought his first company, Rovi purchased his second, and Imagination Technologies claimed his third. After working as a product manager and evangelist at Apple, Eric founded ArcTouch, his fourth company, with Adam Fingerman.

Eric knows a well designed and implemented app is magic. Once installed, an app transforms your device into a special purpose instrument for just about anything—from predicting the weather to reuniting relatives. It’s this wide-open potential for each project that inspires Eric’s invigorating insight.

Adam Fingerman

Founder & Managing Partner

Adam Fingerman was working on a list of potential apps well before the iPhone SDK became public knowledge. That prescient list of his still exists and some of the ideas on it illuminate how ArcTouch has maintained its leading position in the industry. Adam’s ace in the hole—his foresight—helps keep ArcTouch on top of product strategy, design, and implementation.

Before founding ArcTouch with Eric Shapiro, Adam worked in product management and marketing at companies including Apple, Lucent, and Roxio. His experience creating and introducing award-winning products goes back to his high school days. Adam’s vision has guided over 200 apps to market.

In each of these positions, Joe compiled successive layers of experience in consulting, leadership, and integration. He’s been immersed in computing since his first programming course in college.
