Formed in September 2002, OCTANe was created by cofounders Tom Moebus, former vice chancellor of the University of California, Irvine, and Dwight Decker, former CEO and chairman of Conexant Systems.
Decker and Moebus saw an opportunity to build Orange County's regional innovation cluster based on our community's collective strengths—an internationally recognized hub for global and midsize biomedical and information technology companies, a major University of California research institute, and a population of over 3 million highly educated and entrepreneurial residents. The only element missing was an organization capable of bringing it all together.
