About this event

Steve Raymond is the CEO of 8i where he is focused on commercializing the company's unique volumetric capture technology. He's also famous for co-founding Big Frame in 2011 and growing it to become the leading talent-management company and Multi-Channel Network (MCN) for online video creators before it was acquired by AwesomenessTV (DreamWorks Animation) in 2014. 

Prior to that, he held numerous digital media leadership roles, including VP of Product and Strategy for Comcast Digital Entertainment, and Sr. Director of BD at Yahoo! Music and Yahoo! Entertainment. Steve has an MBA from the Anderson School of Management at UCLA and a BS in Mechanical Engineering from the University of Notre Dame.

We'll be talking to Steve about his journey and future plans, as well as asking him what we can expect from 8i in the coming months and years. We will also touch on how he views the NZ start-up scene compared to the US, and ask him to cover any advice he can give entrepreneurs and founders here in NZ.
