TechCrunch UK Dinner with Scott Rafer, CEO Lookery (Ticket Only Event)
Thursday, May 8, 2008 from 7:00 PM to 10:00 PM (BST)
London, United Kingdom
TechCrunch UK Dinner An informal evening with US-based Internet entrepreneur Scott Rafer, CEO of Lookery.com, and former CEO of MyBlogLog, which was acquired by Yahoo! last year for $10 million. We heard he'd be in London, so we thought of throwing a quick dinner to get some startups together! (PLEASE NOTE: This is a "Ticket Only" Event, which means you'll need to have purchased a ticket prior to the event. Price includes dinner and wine). BIO: Scott Rafer has been helping Internet publishers and users jump on What’s Right Now! since 1995. Today, that means delivering services for social publishing and discovery. Scott is CEO of Lookery, as well as co-founder of Mashery and chairman of Winksite. Lookery is an ad network and user-targeting service that is supporting the growth of social applications starting with Facebook. Mashery manages API and developer programs on behalf of web services providers including Facebook app providers. Winksite helps publishers large and small assemble active mobile communities around their brands based on the content they already syndicate. Just before all that, he was CEO of MyBlogLog until Yahoo! acquired the company in January 2007. Before MyBlogLog, Scott tried to build blog/RSS search companies in both 1998 & 2003. Before the first dotcom boom, Rafer led Internet products group Kodak Hollywood, worked in investment banking at Needham & Company, and graduated from the M&T Program at UPenn.
