Eben Upton

Founder Raspberry Pi Foundation
  • Steven Osborn


Eben Upton holds a PhD in computer science from the University of Cambridge. In 2006, while working for Broadcom and teaching at Cambridge, Eben noticed a sharp decline in qualified engineering candidates. This insight was the driving force for a project he started to work on at night and on weekends. Eben has a vision to provide the world with a $25 hackable Linux computer that enables students to learn computer programming and engineering in their bedroom. This effort later became the Raspberry Pi Foundation (, which is already making an impact on education in computer science and serving as a tremendous catalyst in the hacker community, as well as in the maker economy, where the Raspberry Pi has been well received.
