About this event

The word “entrepreneur” gets thrown around quite a bit these days, normalizing the bold-blooded. But in reality, being an entrepreneur is the farthest thing from normal - what spurs someone to take the leap out of their comfort zone to pursue something bigger than themselves?

For Pete Kim, it was the realization he could take advertising and do it better. Having held leadership roles at both Yahoo! and Google, Pete was comfortable in his job - until he saw a window of opportunity and took it. Now? Pete is the founder and CEO of MightyHive, one of the fastest growing buyers of advanced advertising in the world, with offices in North America, Europe and Asia.

From local to global, Pete has grown his company from a small founding team to a profitable and rapidly growing corporation. For the entrepreneurs, dreamers and believers in the audience, Pete has candid and blunt advice to share on how to build your first business.

Now four years into his first venture, Pete can cover the core aspects of the entrepreneurial journey, including how to build the courage to leave your job, the hard but honest truth on how to get funded, what qualities to look for in your first employees and how to keep your vision alive as the months - and then years - go by.
