14th DukeGEN Networking Event with Alexis Ohanian, co-founder of Reddit
Tuesday, November 12, 2013 from 6:00 PM to 8:00 PM (EST)
The co-founder of Reddit will be at Duke on November 12th and talking about his new book, Without Their Permission.
As Alexis Ohanian learned when he helped to co-found the immensely popular reddit.com, the internet is the most powerful and democratic tool for disseminating information in human history. And when that power is harnessed to create new communities, technologies, businesses or charities, the results can be absolutely stunning.
In his new book, Alexis shares his ideas, tips and even his own doodles about harnessing the power of the web for good, and along the way, he shares his philosophy with young entrepreneurs all over the globe.
At 29, Ohanian has come to personify the dorm-room tech entrepreneur, changing the world without asking permission. Within a couple of years of graduating from the University of Virginia, Ohanian did just that, selling reddit for millions of dollars. He's gone on to start many other companies, like hipmunk and breadpig, all while representing Y Combinator and investing in over sixty other tech startups. WITHOUT THEIR PERMISSION is his personal guidebook as to how other aspiring entrepreneurs can follow in his footsteps.
