Michael Hruska

President and CEO

Problem Solutions, LLC

Michael Hruska started out as a researcher at the National Institute of Standards and Technology, a career choice stemming from a passion for technological innovation. His interests and expertise in technology led to the founding of Problem Solutions, LLC., a software company out of Homestead, Pa., by Hruska and his brother in 2004.

Since the company’s founding, Hruska and his team have built many award-winning products and advanced technologies in a wide variety of industries using sensors and smart-technology ecosystems.

Hruska’s love for innovation and technology fuels his desire to spread technological change and innovation through his community. He is currently an advisor and mentor to education tech startups for GSV Capital, has served on the board of numerous nonprofits and hosts monthly meetings for entrepreneurs.

“This community has so much potential for growth and innovation,” Hruska said. “I am passionate about doing everything I can to provide guidance and opportunity to those who live here. I work hard to impact the entrepreneurial vision of my community by providing monthly and special events that find, connect and engage young and experienced entrepreneurs.”

Hruska’s service on nonprofit boards is what he says drives him to set new visions and prototype new services and programs. His passions follow him all over the world as he speaks to audiences internationally on topics such as learning technologies, intelligent tutoring and adaptive systems. He also enjoys working regionally, speaking at events about innovation, entrepreneurship and leadership.

In his free time, Hruska enjoys traveling, trying new foods and “living life adventurously” with his wife and their three dogs.
