Julia Hartz hopes to inspire people to live more by building the world’s largest marketplace of live experiences. Since founding Eventbrite in 2006 with Kevin Hartz and Renaud Visage, the company has generated over $3 billion in gross ticket sales, with more than 200 million tickets processed to events and experiences around the globe. A key to this growth and success is the people of Eventbrite (fondly referred to as The Britelings), which has grown to over 500 employees in seven offices around the world.
Julia cultivates and advocates for Eventbrite’s award-winning culture (voted “Best Places to Work in the San Francisco Bay Area” five years running). She has been honored as one of Inc.’s 35 under 35 in 2014 and Fortune’s Most Powerful Women Entrepreneurs in 2013. Julia is also a frequent speaker on live experiences, consumer trends and entrepreneurship, and has been recently featured in Forbes, Fortune, Bloomberg and Inc. Magazine.
Julia started her career in Hollywood as a development executive at MTV and FX Networks. In our digital age, Julia believes that real-life, human experiences transcend digital endeavors and lead to individual happiness and strong global communities. Julia is living out more than one calling in her lifetime, and is mother to two empowered daughters ready to rule the world.
