Join us Wednesday March 13 as our CEO Brian O'Kelley tells the story of "3 Failures and 1 (big) Success: The Evolution of a Startup CEO." He'll share the story of his tech startup career, beginning at Princeton where he launched a web design firm and built an open-source e-commerce engine used by more than 100 companies. When he graduated, he was the CEO at Netamorphosis, an early e-commerce site for venues and events before joining Right Media as CTO in 2003. After a successful acquisition by Yahoo! for $850 million, Brian ultimately founded AppNexus.
He'll share lessons learned in building the early www pages, the downfalls of unsecured email, the importance of a plan B, and balancing relationships between friends and founders. We'll have pizza and beers at 6:30pm, and Brian's presentation will begin at 7pm.
