VEF hosts The Man Who Owns The Internet

The Vancouver Enterprise Forum is hosting an evening with Technology Maverick Kevin Ham on September 15th at the Vancity Theatre.

KevinHamKevin Ham has been described as the most powerful dotcom mogul you’ve never heard of. He was featured on the cover of Business 2.0 magazine in 2007 as “The man who owns the Internet” and is one of a handful of major-league “domainers” in the world. Even in a field filled with unusual career paths, Kevin’s stands out.

Formally trained as a family doctor, he taught himself programming so he can dabble in the internet, When his web ventures started pulling in more money in one month than what he made in one year as a resident, he decided to put medicine on hold to pursue the riches of the web. Since 2000 he has amassed a portfolio of more than 300,000 domains that some estimate is worth more than $300M.

Now, Kevin is out to surprise again. His newest venture – Reinvent Technology – aims to build a powerhouse of Internet businesses around his portfolio of domain assets. Kevin will talk about how this maverick of domains built his empire and what it takes to succeed in the new emerging economy.

Pre-registration tickets for the event are $45 each online or $50 at the door. If you have an important message to share with the technology community, consider applying for a 100-second lighting pitch by completing an application online.
