Chad Hurley Biography

Chad Hurley is known for his significant role in the digital revolution of video sharing, having co-founded YouTube and served as its Chief Executive Officer. Prior to YouTube's inception, Hurley was part of eBay's PayPal division, contributing to his extensive experience in the tech industry. His expertise was particularly visible in his responsibility for the tagging and video-sharing features of YouTube, integral aspects that propelled the platform's success. In a monumental business move, Hurley sold YouTube to Google for a staggering $1.65 billion.

Post-YouTube, Hurley continued his ventures in the tech industry by co-founding MixBit, another video-sharing service that enables video editing via smartphones. His active participation in tech-based entrepreneurship and his deep understanding of user-friendly digital interfaces make him a leading figure in this field. Additionally, Hurley is the founder and CEO of EyeTell, Inc., a software development company currently in the early stages of development.

Beyond his tech pursuits, Hurley has also demonstrated a keen interest in sports, as evidenced by his diverse investments. He is a minority owner of the NBA's Golden State Warriors and the MLS' Los Angeles Football Club (LAFC). He also extended his investments to Formula One, being a major investor with the US F1 Team. Further showcasing his passion for sports, Hurley became an investor at Leeds United, the English Premier League football club, in partnership with the 49ers. His association with LAFC and his investment in Leeds United with the 49ers have not only diversified his portfolio but also underscored his understanding and appreciation of team dynamics and sportsmanship.

Chad will speak about the entrepreneur's drive to find the next big thing once you have had a taste of success and share his steps to execute your idea.

Finding the Golden Ticket

His new endeavor, MixBit, was born from this philosophy, capitalizing on the absence of user-friendly tools to create content. Chad will discuss the challenges he faced launching YouTube and MixBit and share the lessons he's learned.
