YW 44 - Organizing and Executing Your Events with Anthony Krumeich

ason Hartman teams up with Bloodhound.com founder, Anthony Krumeich, to talk about organizing and executing successful trade shows. Anthony talks about the path that led to him becoming the 26-year-old successful co-founder and CEO of Bloodhound.com. What began as an idea to do something with text messaging apps ended up turning into the development of apps that provide practical tools and solutions for event organizers.  The apps are very attractive to organizers because they work for small or large events, can be customized, provide many relevant and timely features, and the more chaotic the event the better the Bloodhound app works.

Before founding Bloodhound, Anthony studied symbolic systems and mathematics at Stanford and participated in honors research in systems neuroscience. He also studied philosophy of mind at Oxford. He grew up in a suburb of New York City and won 1st place at the 2004 Intel International Science & Engineering Fair.  Anthony is passionate about combining his interests in technology, human behavior, and design to create new opportunities. He enjoys live music, sailing, and his Boxer, Champ. The website ishttp://bloodhound.com/.
