In collaboration with Bank of Ireland's startlab, IIBN NY is kicking off its Fall keynote series with Northern Irish entrepreneur, Pete Johnston, Founder & CEO, Kalo.
Hear how Peter raised $25 million from marquee investors, including PayPal co-founders Max Levchin and Peter Thiel to become a major player in the Gig Economy. Today, Kalo provides freelancer management software solutions to big name clients such as Google, AirBnb, Expedia, The Economist, and POPSUGAR..
Pete’s story is nothing short of impressive, starting his journey as a designer for Google and ad giant M&C Saatchi in London. He left Google in 2014 and founded Kalo, formerly known as Lystable, as part of the Tech Stars London Accelerator Program. The company, now in San Francisco is set to become as the founder calls "the world's most badass recruitment engine". Pete is a major supporter of the Belfast economy and is a founding member of the Ormeau Baths a co-working and tech community in Belfast.
