Dirk Elmendorf

Founder of Rackspace Hosting, Founder of ServerBeach, Partner at r26D

After helping to start a very small computer consulting company, I stumbled into the idea that would change my life. I co-founded Rackspace Hosting in 1999. “Fanatical Support” has continued to succeed in a market crowded with companies more concerned about technology than the needs of the customers.

At r26D, I spend my time working on SaaS companies and exploring opportunities for innovation. I’m also focused on organizing and energizing San Antonio’s entrepreneur community. I am involved in Trinity University’s entrepreneurship program.

I aspire to brew the perfect Wit, harvest honey from my own bees, and code the perfect system.
