Xconomy Xchange: Eventbrite and the Online-to-Offline Economy
-- San Francisco, CA – Xconomy will hold an Xconomy Xchange event on “Eventbrite and the Online-to-Offline Economy” on August 7, 2012, at 5:30 p.m. at the offices of the Greenstart cleantech startup accelerator in downtown San Francisco. Wells Fargo’s Technology & Venture Banking Group is participating as an event sponsor.
This forum, nicknamed the “Event Event,” will feature a discussion on building businesses that help consumers find out what’s going on in the outside world, bridging the gap between online and offline life. San Francisco-based Eventbrite is a leading player in this new “020” economy, having helped event organizers sell more than 60 million tickets since its founding in 2006. Xconomy’s event will feature a wide-ranging conversation with Eventbrite co-founders, the husband-and-
wife team of Kevin and Julia Hartz. Kevin Hartz, who is also a prominent Silicon Valley angel investor, will also talk about the thinking behind his temporary moratorium on investing in new startups. Renaud Visage, Eventbrite co-founder and Chief Technology Officer will also be giving a special presentation. In addition, attendees will hear from Eventbrite board member and former Ticketmaster CEO Sean Moriarty.
“This event is a unique opportunity for people who have started or who want to start an online company to learn from the founders one of the fastest growing online-to-offline startups in the world. And, as always, our attendees will have the opportunity to network with some of Silicon Valley’s movers and shakers,” says Xconomy’s Chief Correspondent and Editor of Xconomy San Francisco, Wade Roush.
Registration is now open. More information and tickets can be found at xconomyxchange5.eventbrite.com.
