eBay to VC: Lessons from the Trenches

#sxsw #eBaytoVC

He’s done it all—and with class. Jeff Jordan redefined online commerce as the head of eBay Marketplaces, popularized digital payments by scaling PayPal and brought the restaurant industry into the Internet Age as the CEO of OpenTable. As a general partner at Andreessen Horowitz, he’s now funding the next wave of online innovation. In this one-on-one conversation with the New York Times' Jenna Wortham, Jeff will share his insights into the digital consumer and what’s next for all of us on the information superhighway (we’re rooting for the ability to make reservations for dinner on the moon or bid on someone to do our daily—erm—okay, weekly gym workouts). Hailed as the ultimate team player, Jeff will also delve into what it takes to lead a company that has to scale exponentially. Join Jeff as he takes us into the future.
