Entrepreneur. Investor. Event expert. Throughout my career I've been deeply involved in the event space. From Startup Weekend, where we produced 1,200+ events in 600 cities spanning 127 countries to Massivo where I mastered producing large events and festivals with 5,000 - 10,000 attendees. In total I've organized events that have brought in more than 500,000 total attendees on a global scale.

Currently I'm working on solving many of my own problems relating to the platforms I was using to manage ticketing, selling tickets, dealing with high email volume, finding venues, & producing events on a global scale.

Clint is passionate about startups and technology. He regularly serves as a lecturer on entrepreneurship & startups at universities such as Stanford.

Currently, Clint and Kathleen Kennedy serve as the two board members on "The Common Good" in the U.S. He is featured in many publications around the world including the New York Times, Forbes and the Wall Street Journal. Based in Seattle, Clint is a pilot, enjoys mountain biking, snowboarding, camping, and photography.
