Do you LOVE Reddit? Want to meet student and local entrepreneurs? Both?

Alexis Ohanian, President of the Internet and co-founder of three successful start-ups will be coming to UMass!

Alexis was a dorm-room tech entrepreneur, launching Reddit and selling it for millions of dollars just a few years after graduation. Afterward he successfully launched other companies, such as hipmunk and breadpig, as well as invested in over sixty other tech startups with Y-Combinator.

He will be here at UMass talking about the power the internet has to create new communities, technologies, businesses, and charities. Alexis also will also have a "fireside chat" with UMass alumnus, Steve King, one of the first 15 employees of Facebook! Afterwards join Alexis, Steve King, local redditors, and entrepreneurs for food, networking, and to have your book signed.

We're also making sweet personalized nametags for the meet-and-greet with flair a-la reddit for everyone who registers for a FREE ticket! Here's an example of Sam the Minuteman's Nametag

Come to the Commonwealth Honors Events Hall on February 23rd to meet a real-life success story, who did it all "Without Their Permission".

BOOK GIVEAWAYS:
We'll be awarding 2 out of the first 50 to RSVP up with a free book. After those two have been picked, we'll award 2 more books to the remaining people who have RSVP-ed.
