About Jensen Huang

Jensen Huang cofounded graphics-chip maker Nvidia in 1993, and has served as its CEO and president ever since.

Huang owns approximately 3% of Nvidia, which went public in 1999.

Born in Taiwan, Huang moved to Thailand as a child, but his family sent him and his brother to the U.S as civil unrest mounted in the Asian nation.

Under Huang, Nvidia became a dominant force in computer gaming chips and has expanded to design chips for data centers and autonomous cars.

He's given Stanford $30 million for an engineering center and, in 2022, gave $50 million to Oregon State University for a namesake research center.
