Don’t miss a Q&A with entrepreneur, investor, bestselling author, and tech media personality Randi Zuckerberg.
She is the Founder & CEO of Zuckerberg Media, a boutique-marketing firm and production company, working with high profile organizations and Fortune 500 companies such as The Clinton Global Initiative, Cirque du Soleil, Conde Nast, and PayPal.
As an early executive at Facebook, she created Facebook Live, now available to two billion people worldwide.
After noticing that she was one of way too few women in tech, she founded Zuckerberg Media, with the mission of introducing children - especially girls and underserved communities - to tech and science in a fun way, in the hopes that the billion dollar tech companies of the future will feature more diversity.
She is also the author of two books. Dot Complicated, a New York Times bestseller, discusses Randi’s personal journey on the front lines of Facebook, and her thoughts on how technology has completely changed our lives. Dot is a children’s picture book that features an energetic little girl who learns to find balance between her gadgets and playing outside with her friends.
The book has inspired an animated television show by the same name, which shows on NBC Universal, CBC, Hulu, and dozens of networks worldwide. Randi is the creator and executive producer of Dot, and hopes it will give young girls a much needed techie role model.
She is also the founder of Sue’s Tech Kitchen, an innovative tech-themed dining concept for families where you can enjoy 3D printed s’mores, edible selfies, cutting edge VR games, robots making you pancakes, and much more - educating families about STEM in a way that feels fun, accessible, and approachable. Sue’s Tech Kitchen has now launched two locations in Tennessee and New York City - with plans to expand to ten additional cities by the end of 2018.
Randi hosts a weekly business radio show on SiriusXM and is the best-selling author of three books. In her (barely) free time, she can be found at the theater. She once dreamed of singing opera at the Met at Lincoln Center - but she’ll settle for her current position on Lincoln Center’s board of directors. She lives in New York City with her husband and two sons.
