Making dough with Ryan Holmes, Hootsuite founder and CEO

Co-presented with the Sydney School of Entrepreneurship

23 March, 2017

Join us for a special Sydney Ideas presentation on entrepreneurship in the digital age featuring HootSuite CEO Ryan Holmes co-hosted by Sydney School of Entrepreneurship.

A serial entrepreneur, Ryan Holmes started his first business in high school, ultimately opening a string of ventures - from a pizza restaurant to a digital media agency – before starting Hootsuite in 2008. As founder and CEO, he has helped grow Hootsuite into the world’s most widely used social relationship platform, with 15-million-plus users, including more than 800 of the Fortune 1000 companies.

A supporter of socially conscious ventures, Ryan has steered Hootsuite to ‘B-Corp’ status, an international award for leading for-profit companies with a social and environmental mission. Through his foundation, The Next Big Thing, he now offers fellowships and mentoring to tomorrow’s brightest entrepreneurs.

Welcome by Professor Richard Miles, Pro Vice-Chancellor (Education – Enterprise and Engagement), the University of Sydney

Discussion with Ryan Holmes facilitated by Nick Kaye, Chief Executive Officer, Sydney School of Entrepreneurship.
