Members joined us for an inspiring IVY Ideas Night on How to Create a Global Company & Change the World (Without Offices), featuring Matt Mullenweg, co-founder of WordPress and founder and CEO of Automattic! Matt released WordPress to the world in 2003, transforming the free blogging software into the most popular publishing platform in the world. More than 27% of the web currently runs on WordPress’s free software, making Matt a crucial figure in powering a generation of writers, entrepreneurs, startups, and companies across the globe. Automattic is also the company behind WordPress.com, WooCommerce, and Jetpack, among other products, with more than 500 employees working from more than 50 different countries.
In this illuminating conversation, Matt talked about his journey from open source development to running a tech company, revealing the entrepreneurial tools necessary to scale a company at the size of Automattic and create world-changing platforms for success. We enjoyed a complimentary cocktail reception and lively conversation with a great group of IVY members and Nasdaq Entrepreneur members before and after the discussion.
