Alexis Ohanian is an entrepreneur and investor based in Brooklyn.  He is best known as the co-founder of the social news site reddit.com–one of the most frequented websites on the Internet.

Now a reddit board member, Alexis focuses on social enterprise Breadpig, publishing authors like xkcd and SMBC — profits donated to worthy causes. Alexis helped launch hipmunk and ran marketing/pr/community before becoming an advisor and joining the fight against SOPA & PIPA.

He will be speaking about his experience in building a business and his passion for entrepreneurship which has come into fruition in his book “Without Their Permission: How the 21st Century Will be Made, Not Managed.”
