Popular Snapchat CEO And Co-Founder To Disrupt SF, Then Disappear 20 Minutes Later

In less than a month, Snapchat Chief Executive Officer and co-founder Evan Spiegel will appear on the TechCrunch stage, talk about what it’s like to make one of the most popular image apps around the world, and then vanish without a trace twenty minutes later on.

But boy! It’s going to be a really interesting twenty minutes.

Spiegel has actually gone from being a student at Stanford College to creating an absolutely new kind of social networking and messaging throughout a couple years. And it has not gone undetected. Snapchat is all the rage with the younger demographic, and it ares catching on with the older crowd, with over 200 million messages daily flowing with the service.

The company recently landed an $80 million Series B at an $800 million appraisal, but a monetization method still has not been revealed (though I’ve actually presumed about it many a time). However finally, Evan and I’ll get to take a seat in person to discuss his take on ephemeral messaging, building a household name from absolutely nothing, and, well … life.

Spiegel, a first-time Disrupt speaker, will be taking the stage along with some Disrupt regulars like Marc Benioff and Marissa Mayer.

Disrupt SF takes control of The San Francisco Design Concourse from September 7 to 11. Tickets are currently on sale right here. If you’re interested in becoming a sponsor, opportunities can be found here.

By the means, if you are curious as to exactly how Spiegel pulled off a Black and White picture in Snapchat (above), try googling ‘Snapchat secret features.’
