Austin Convention Center

Co-founder and CEO Jonah Peretti will share how BuzzFeed emerged from the early web scene of memes-makers and bloggers, grew into a global news and entertainment company, and continually adapted as the web changed and new social platforms emerged.

The talk will include lessons you can apply to your own work and help you prepare for major industry shifts that are already underway.
