Steve Kaufer P ’13, the current CEO and co-founder of TripAdvisor, visited Brandeis on April 22.
Kaufer hosted a talk inside the Presentation Room of the Shapiro Admission Center about his experiences with starting up TripAdvisor, now one of the world’s most established, recognized and acclaimed travel review websites. Under Kaufer’s guidance, TripAdvisor has grown into the largest travel site in the world and the largest web 2.0 company in the northeast. He outlined his experiences—both his successes and obstacles he's had to overcome—to a packed audience.

Before Kaufer founded TripAdvisor in 2000, he worked and co-founded software companies. He also won the 2005 Ernst & Young Entreprenuer of the Year Award. 

The event was sponsored by the Hiatt Career Center.
