about.me

Tony Conrad is both a founder and an investor. He is the founder/CEO of Sphere & about.me, and also a part of Founding Team True Ventures, Investor Automattic (WordPress), MakerBot, and Blue Bottle.¬†Conrad’s focus at Big Omaha was to motivate its attendees to not start companies, but to start movements.
