Our parent company PEER 1 is an associate sponsor of the JFSA Innovators Lunch featuring entrepreneur and founder of Craigslist, Craig Newmark. The event takes place May 17th at the Hyatt Regency in Vancouver, Canada. As we all know, Craig is very well regarded for launching his simple online calendar of events 10 years ago in San Francisco, and turning it into a top 20 Internet business with sites in more than 115 cities in 25 countries. Throughout this explosive growth, he has ensured the site stays true to its non-commercial roots. In 2005, he was recognized by Time magazine as one of the world’s most influential people. We’re looking forward to seeing and hearing Craig, and will post a follow up here.
