Description

About the Talk.

Jeff Pulver is an American Internet entrepreneur known for his work as founder and chief executive of pulver.com and co-founder of Free World Dialup, Vonage, MoNage and Zula (app).

Jeff has been called a Voice over Internet Protocol pioneer and without him there’d arguably be no Skype, Snapchat or Facetime.

He created the Pulver Order, a US ruling that meant internet voice communications (VoIP) would not be subject to strict telecoms regulations. He’s also the co-founder and Chairman of Zula, the app that helps teams complete tasks without being chained to their computers.

In 1995 he coined the term VON to stand for Voice/Video on the Net and continues today to contribute words to both the telecom and social media vernacular. In 1996 he founded the VON Coalition which helped keep VoIP unregulated in America for 9 years. From 1997 to 2008 he produced and hosted the VON Conferences. VON conferences in the US and Europe helped create and coalesce ecosystems around VoIP, online communications.

He has also been named as "a leading thought-leader on the Real-Time Web", and refers to himself as “a habitual entrepreneur who likes to start Internet communications companies.

Jeff was an early investor in both Twitter and Facebook and continues as an Angel Investor investing several million dollars over the years in Israeli start-ups, including SeamantiNet Ltd., Innovid Ltd., and Sense of Fashion Ltd.

In 2016, he launched an Internet communication conference series called MoNage, “The Future of the Conversational Web, Chatbots and Messaging”, with events in Boston and San Jose.

This will be the focus of his talk at this event.
