BLAST FROM THE PAST: Kevin Hartz - Founder & CEO of Eventbrite


This week on Silicon Real we're digging into the archives to bring back one of our most popular guests ever - Kevin Hartz, the Founder & CEO of Eventbrite. 

Kevin's episode originally aired back in July 2014 and was an instant hit. As the Founder and CEO of Eventbrite, Kevin Hartz has quite an impressive C.V.  Not only does he run the world's leading self-service ticketing platform with $200 million of investment that has processed over 200 million tickets worth over $2.5 billion, he has also personally invested early in PayPal, AirBnB and Pinterest among others.

But Kevin isn't your typical Silicon Valley CEO.  He is introspective and philosophical noting that Eventbrite has been fortunate over the years to ride the waves of other successful technologies like Google search and SEO.  He is also aware that in our ultra-connected social media world, us humans ultimately crave real, in-person interactions and events.

Those that watched or listened to it the first time round will know it's well worth revisting, but for those of you that are new to the show, strap in and prepare for a fascinating episode with the head of one of Silicon Valley's true success stories.
