Event Details

Reggie Aggarwal, Cvent


Everybody has heard of Eventbrite, Meetup, Plancast, and Evite, right?
But did you know Cvent is on pace to channel more than $9 billion in event and conference spending in 2013 and is bigger than its next 10 competitors — combined!
 
Founded in 1999, Cvent is now a booming company with 1,000 employees and 10,000 clients in 90 countries.  His investors list read like a who's who of Washington's top business leaders from the likes of Steve Case, Marc Andreessen, Jack Biddle, etc and has raised close to $136 million in venture funding.
 
Reggie's path to success is truly a spectacular story of a founder who went up against all odds including being a 33 year old bankrupt entrepreneur living in his parent's basement.  And through his sheer tenacity and raw guts he persevered the post dot-com era to become one of the most successful startup companies in the DC area.  Now it is rumored that Cvent will be the next IPO company and will definitely have an immediate impact to the startup DC ecosystem.
 
This will be a fireside chat with Reggie as he talks about the founding days of Cvent and the trials and tribulations of the company before overtaking the event management industry by storm.  You don't want to miss this opportunity to hear from this rag to riches founder.
