This week's Female Founder is legendary for creating a ticketing platform that has gained such a large following, that you wouldn't even know where else to go if you were looking to host an event. Whether it's virtual or IRL, Eventbrite's Founder and CEO, Julia Hartz has built the platform for it!
After a career in the entertainment field on the west coast, Julia and her husband decided that if they were going to take pay cuts to build a startup, that it would be their own. In 2006 they got to work!
