Alexis Ohanian has worn many hats.
He’s the cofounder of Reddit, the front page of the internet, and ran the site alongside his cofounders all the way through the Y Combinator funding and Conde Nast acquisition, until eventually heading off to work on new projects like breadpig and hipmunk.
Eventually, Ohanian returned to Reddit as Chairman of the Board as Ellen Pao stepped into the CEO role last year. But he’s also the “Ambassador to the East” for Y Combinator, scouting the best talent on the East Coast to be a part of the most valuable accelerator in the world.
From Reddit cofounder to Chief Swine Defender of breadpig to early investor in hipmunk, Ohanian has done it all, which means that his wisdom doth overflow.
We’re more amped than ever to tap that fountain of knowledge and couldn’t be more excited to have Ohanian join us on the Disrupt stage.
Ohanian will join other notable Disrupt NY speakers, including Sean Rad, Aaron Levie and Bastian Lehmann.
