On Monday, 11th August 2014, from 5:00 pm the iHub is pleased to host Renaud Visage, (@renaudvisage) co founder and CTO of Eventbrite for a fireside chat hosted by Juliana Rotich, founder of Ushahidi and Trustee at the iHub.

Renaud, who is responsible for the internationalization of Eventbrite, the globally popular ticketing and event planning service will engage the community in a conversation about entreprenuership, expanding your markets, identifying and meeting the customers’ needs.

iHub is increasingly a nexus point not only for Nairobi’s tech community, but also for the global technology ecosystem and we are happy to have innovators like Renaud join and lend insight as we further the growth of technology in Kenya.

iHub’s Fireside Chats are a forum for the Nairobi tech community to engage with and be inspired by relevant local and global thought leaders. We look forward to a high quality discussion with active participants.

Please follow this Eventbrite link (pun intended ;-) for your free ticket to the event. Tickets are required and  limited so please reserve now to avoid disappointment.
