JibJab Founders to Speak at Silicon Beach @ USC

Keynote address, "We Survived 13 Years in The Dumbest Business, and Still Going," to provide a hilarious and cutting-edge look at how these digital pioneers created and monetized a global phenomenon.

Venice Beach, CA -- Brothers, technology entrepreneurs, political satirists and co-founders of the global phenomenon JibJab Evan and Gregg Spiridellis will deliver the closing Keynote address on technology, innovation and "We Survived 13 Years in The Dumbest Business, and Still Going" at the Silicon Beach @ USC conference this Thursday, September 13th, 4:30pm.

The hilarious brothers and internet pioneers who utilized their video personalization technology to create political and social viral videos will share insight on getting to a billion views, monetizing their technology, and riding a monstrous tech wave from their Venice Beach office in the heart of Silicon Beach. The Spiridellis brothers, now dads, will also share their vision for reinventing storytelling as a major children’s entertainment content creator for iOS, with their new multi-platform property StoryBots, already a Top 10 Grossing Book App for the iPad (along with the Bible).

Full of technology incubators and start-ups, the Los Angeles area west of the 405 is filled with huge investment dollars, unique access to Hollywood’s entertainment studios and creative talent, and an entourage of the most creative minds around. This new hub for entrepreneurship has industry leaders increasingly referring to this intersection as “Silicon Beach,” and the University of Southern California will play a significant part in shaping a vision for its future.

Led by the Lloyd Greif Center for Entrepreneurial Studies and the Institute for Communication Technology Management (CTM), USC’s Marshall School of Business will host Silicon Beach @ USC, a two-day event highlighting innovation in digital media and technology, on September 12-13, 2012 on the USC campus.
