About this event

Growing a company from an idea to one of the largest investment raises in Canadian Venture Capital history. Join us as we sit down with Ryan Holmes, the Founder & CEO of Hootsuite.   Ryan Holmes founded Hootsuite in 2008, growing the company from a lean startup to a global leader in social media with over 11 million users, including 79 of the Fortune 100 companies.   Thought leader, dog lover and serial entrepreneur, Ryan has redefined the face of social media—bringing Twitter, Facebook and other social networks out of the dorm room and into the boardroom. A college drop-out, he started a paintball company and pizza restaurant before founding Invoke Media, the company that developed Hootsuite.   Today, Ryan is an authority in technology and business. He writes regularly for publications like Fast Company, Inc, Fortune, and has a column in the Wall Street Journal. He's also one of LinkedIn's top 20 most followed Influencers and presents at the world’s top tech conferences.   An angel investor and advisor outside of Hootsuite, Ryan supports programs that empower the greater startup community and future generations of entrepreneurs, including his own non-profit initiative, The Next Big Thing.
