Co-founder of Eventbrite - Venture Partner of Index Ventures
Renaud Visage is the technical co-founder of Eventbrite. Renaud anticipated several fundamental shifts in the way we use the internet – including the arrival of social media, big data analysis, the shift to mobile devices as first screens and the ubiquity of APIs – and leveraged their disruptive power to Eventbrite’s advantage, fuelling the company’s growth into the globally leading self-service ticketing platform it is today. In 2014, Renaud was included in Wired UK’s Top 100 digital influencers in Europe.
Renaud is also Venture Partner at Index Ventures, guiding founders in realizing their global ambition and helping Index evaluate and support companies that are solving challenging technical problems.
With engineering degrees from Cornell University (USA) and Ecole Centrale de Lyon (France), Renaud started his career as an environmental consultant before joining the dot com world in 2000 in Silicon Valley.
When he is not thinking about technology, he’s taking pictures somewhere around the world.
