THIS IS A PAID EVENT - PURCHASE YOUR TICKET IN THE LINK BELOW https://www.startupgrind.com/events/details/startup-grind-seattle-presents-startup-grind-seattle-hosts-eric-breon-founder-ceo-of-vacasa Hear from CEO Eric Breon about how he's growing Vacasa in the new Hybrid-Gig-Economy - a huge departure from the 100% peer-to-peer based Gig Economy because Vacasa hires the local vacation town housekeepers and property managers so that the home owner does nothing but sit back while their customers get the best vacation experience possible - and thus increasing the minimum wage in many cities - $15/hour and up - almost double the national minimum of $7.25. Agenda 6:00 pm: Networking and Food 6:45 pm: Fireside Chat 8:00 pm: Networking --- Speaker Eric Breon - Vacasa (CEO/Founder) He founded Vacasa in November 2009 after acquiring the responsibility of managing a family member's vacation home, and currently serves as the company’s founder and CEO. He has since grown the company from two to over 2,000 employees, with 70% year-over-year revenue growth. In October 2017, Eric secured $103.5 million in Series B funding, one of the largest rounds in the vacation rental industry. Host Mike Grabham - Package Guard inc (CEO/Founder) Mike by nature, is a fearless leader. He consults with founders on launching new software and hardware products. He is a curious start up guy that has been delivering revenue, new products and creative marketing in startup and turnaround chaos for 20+ years. He is a six time founder and is constantly learning by helping smart people change industries and searching for the perfect glass of wine. --- Global Partner Google for Entrepreneurs (http://www.google.com/entrepreneurs/) Google is committed to empowering entrepreneurs around the world through programs, partnerships, and our products.
