MADE IN VANCOUVER: The HootSuite Success Story

It is time to kickoff the season with a talk by a local serial entrepreneur: Ryan Holmes, CEO of HootSuite Media Inc.

Ryan will share talk about the story behind Invoke and how he was able to turn it from a web development services firm to the creators of HootSuite.  Since launching in late 2008, HootSuite has become one of the world’s most popular Twitter clients, now with Facebook, Linkedin and Wordpress integration, and it is used by clients like Martha Stewart and The Economist.
