Alexis Ohanian

Tech founder and venture capitalist Alexis Ohanian embraces disruption, beginning with his Wa­ffle House epiphany that becoming an attorney was not his destiny to co-founding Reddit in his UVA dorm and launching the venture upon graduation. Ultimately selling the iconic company for millions, Ohanian’s entrepreneurial journey is a business school case study and playbook for founders.

Reddit.com has become one of the largest websites in the US. It was initially funded by Y Combinator in 2005 and sold to Conde Nast in 2006. Ohanian returned as executive chairman in 2014 to help lead the turnaround of the now independent company. Without Their Permission, his national bestseller chronicles much of the story.

In 2016 Ohanian left to co-found Initialized Capital—a seed-stage venture fund with over $770M under management and a portfolio with $100B in market value, which invested in companies like Instacart and Coinbase. In addition to starting Reddit.com, he has also been instrumental in other successful online ventures, including HipMunk and BreadPig. He’s invested in and advised over two hundred tech startups and was a partner at Y Combinator.

In June of 2020, in protest and solidarity with the national outcry for social justice, Ohanian stepped down from his seat on Reddit’s Board of Directors and urged his company to seat a Black candidate in his place.

With his passion for inclusion and a fervent commitment to Founders, Ohanian left Initialized Capital to establish the venture firm, Seven Seven Six, which recently closed its first fund with $150M. Focused on people, culture, and community, Seven Seven Six places humanity at its core. The firms’ limited partnership structure has DEI in its design, comprising 50% women and15% Black or indigenous limited partners. The firm offers the Founders in its portfolio an unprecedented Growth and Caregiving Commitment through an additional 2% of investment – set aside and dedicated to the life needs of Founders to encourage a balanced lifestyle including childcare, eldercare, or personal development. The innovation does not stop there. Through an open application process (not traditional for the VC world), Seven Seven Six has designed an Operator in Residence program to deliver optimum value to its Founders through access to cutting edge Operators. A first of its kind, the program promises to infuse VC with even greater diversity.

Ohanian is an advocate for the open internet, STEM education, and paid family leave. He has lobbied on Capitol Hill and penned a New York Times op-ed, Paternity Leave Was Crucial After The Birth of My Child, and Every Father Deserves It. Ohanian launched the Business Dad podcast, where he interviews fellow fathers about what it means to be a dad in today’s world and how they balance their careers and families. He is also the lead founding investor in the LA-based professional women’s soccer team, Angel City Football Club.

SB still provides leadership to Parallels today as the company’s Executive Chairman. SB is also the co-founder and Executive Chairman of Acumatica, and a Senior Partner at Runa Capital, a global technology-focused venture capital firm he co-founded with university colleagues in 2010.

As of July 1, 2021, SB has stepped down as CEO of Acronis so he can better lead the company’s technology and research strategy as Chief Research Officer. SB’s role now includes a larger focus on overseeing and directing the company’s advanced technologies, as well as its university relations program – including the Schaffhausen Institute of Technology (SIT) in Switzerland, which he co-founded in 2019.

SB sits on the Governing Board of the Centre for Quantum Technologies in Singapore. He holds a B.S. in Physics, an M.S. (Hons) in Physics and Electrical Engineering, and a Ph.D. in Computer Science from MIPT.

In her last few years at CNN, Baldwin created and hosted her own CNN Digital series American Woman where she shined a light on trailblazing women in politics and pop culture.

Frequently Asked Questions

COVID-19 Response

Onsite COVID Protocols – Fontainebleau Miami Beach Hotel

Acronis is committed to creating a safe and energizing event that will allow us to effectively meet with our partners in person in Miami. With that goal in mind, we would like to share with you the following guidelines we are putting into place to ensure a safe and successful Acronis #CyberFit Summit in Miami.

  1. All attendees, speakers, sponsors, and Acronis staff will be required to wear a mask covering the nose and mouth while at the event, even if you are vaccinated. Recent studies and guidance from the CDC state that both unvaccinated and vaccinated individuals can transmit the COVID-19 Delta variant. Speakers will be allowed to remove their masks while on stage and everyone in attendance will, of course, be permitted to remove their mask while eating.
  2. All attendees, speakers, sponsors, and Acronis staff will be required to show proof of a negative COVID-19 PCR test 72 hours prior to arrival onsite at the event. We will have a COVID-19 PCR testing station at the event for anyone needing to show proof of a negative test prior to returning home.
  3. Physical distancing measures will be in place at all Summit venues.
  4. We will check the temperature of every person prior to entry at the Acronis event space and will conduct random spot checks throughout the day. We will also send out daily symptom check questionnaires.
  5. If you are not yet vaccinated, we encourage you to get vaccinated prior to attending the event. Ideally, you would have received at least one COVID-19 vaccine dose two weeks prior to the event start date.
  6. Hand sanitizer stations will be available throughout the event space, and we are implementing enhanced cleaning protocols of each room every day.
  7. Additionally, prior to the event, if you come into contact with someone who has tested positive for COVID-19 or if you feel ill, we encourage you to contact your doctor, stay home, and participate in the virtual event experience.
