Reddit co-founder Alexis Ohanian to keynote at Microsoft Business Applications Summit, June 10-11

We're thrilled to announce Reddit Co-Founder Alexis Ohanian will be our special guest keynote speaker at the Microsoft Business Applications Summit, coming to Atlanta, Georgia on June 10 and 11, 2019.

Dubbed the 'Mayor of the Internet' by Forbes, Ohanian cofounded Reddit in 2005, sold the site to Condé Nast in 2006, then returned in 2015 as executive chair of a newly independent Reddit. Today, Reddit is one of the internet's most powerful community gathering spaces and the 6th largest website in the world.

Ohanian has invested in and advised more than 200 tech startups, was a partner at Y Combinator, and cofounded Initialized Capital, an early stage venture capital firm, where he now serves as managing partner. He also created and hosted two seasons of Small Empires, a series profiling tech startups and their communities. Named to Forbes' '30 Under 30' list two years in a row, Ohanian is the bestselling author of Without Their Permission, a guidebook for harnessing the power of the internet for good.

Ohanian will bring his fresh new vision to this one-of-a-kind keynote you won't want to miss. It's sure to inspire you to take your organization to the next level with innovative new solutions. Register today!
