Renaud Visage

Co-Founder @ Eventbrite
Renaud Visage is the technical co-founder & CTO of Eventbrite, the largest live experience platform in the world by the number of events and creators. Eventbrite has raised $334M from high caliber VCs including Sequoia, Tiger Global, and T. Rowe Price, and the company recently crossed $10B in cumulative gross ticket sales. Renaud anticipated several fundamental shifts in the way we use the internet – including the arrival of social media, big data analysis, the shift to mobile devices as first screens and the ubiquity of APIs – and leveraged their disruptive power to Eventbrite’s advantage, fueling the company’s growth into the globally leading self-service ticketing platform it is today, processing more than 3M tickets every week. Renaud is also an angel investor, guiding founders that are solving challenging technical problems in realizing their global ambitions. With engineering degrees from Cornell University (USA) and Ecole Centrale de Lyon (France), Renaud started his career as an environmental consultant before joining the dot com world in 2000 in Silicon Valley, as Director of Engineering at Zing Networks, the Internet photo-sharing pioneer later acquired by Sony. In 2014, Renaud was included in Wired UK's Top 100 digital influencers in Europe. When he is not thinking about technology, he’s taking pictures somewhere around the world.
