Biography

Chris Hughes is one of the preeminent forces of the digital era and the Millennial generation that helped shape it. As a co-founder of Facebook and the current publisher of The New Republic, he is a major technological and entrepreneurial force who helped shape "disruption" into one of the defining features of economic and social life today.

A digital savant and global thought leader whose business happens to be people, Hughes speaks with experience on a variety of topics, including leadership, innovation, organization, entrepreneurship, globalism and the future of technology as it pertains to business, education, mass media, health care and points beyond.

Hughes co-founded Facebook in his college dorm room with Mark Zuckerberg and several others, playing a key role in expanding the network beyond Harvard to other universities and then the entire world. He left Facebook in 2007 to work for Barack Obama's presidential campaign, employing his expertise on the groundbreaking social network MyBarackObama.com.
