Alexis Ohanian, open internet activist and co-founder of Reddit, came to Northeastern's campus to speak to an audience of nearly 500 students, faculty, alumni as part of his Without Their Permission book tour. During his hour on stage, Alexis shared his story and gave advice to budding entrepreneurs. He also interviewed Northeastern alumnus Michael Norman, CSSH'05 about his crowdfunding investment platform, Wefunder.
Alexis encouraged Huskies to "get in the habit of taking ideas and executing them." Mike's advice - "Be diverse with co-op and learn about how the world works."
Northeastern's Entrepreneurship Club hosted the event in Blackman Auditorium as part of their weekly speaker series. The Empower Campaign provided video coverage.
