David Karp

First ever Tumblr blogger

David Karp is a founder of Tumblr, a short-form blogging platform. In the early age, David took Japanese classes and moved to Tokyo when he was 17. He finally found Tumblr when he was 21 and it is often described as Twitter meets YouTube and Wordpress. In August 2009, David was named as the Best Young Tech Entrepreneur 2009 by BusinessWeek. Karp made personal investments into several companies like Superpedestrian, Inc., Sherpaa, Inc., and Splash, an event marketing platform company.

David Karp and Martin Bryant will discuss the role of business as a force for good, the benefits of pushing progress forward, and the crucial initiative to activate the next generation of allies, activists and - even more - accomplices at TNW Conference 2017
