Web-to-print pioneer to give keynote at Print World 2010
TORONTO—The founder and CEO of the world’s leading on-demand printing site for self-published authors will be a keynote speaker at Print World 2010 in Toronto on Monday, November 22.

Canadian-born multi-millionaire Bob Young founded Lulu.com in 2002. Lulu empowers authors to publish their work themselves with complete editorial and copyright control, using the latest digital printing technology for short-run hard-copy books.

Millions of registered users and two million site visitors each month as well as offices in Toronto, Raleigh, London and Bangalore, enable Lulu customers to reach the globe. Using Lulu’s publishing tools, authors format and upload their digital content. Then they can take advantage of Lulu’s global marketplace, social networking and author services, free customized storefronts and retail listings on stores including Amazon, Barnes & Noble.
 


Lulu’s founder and CEO Bob Young is a true technology entrepreneur and open-source visionary with four successful multi-million dollar start up companies on his resume. In 1993, Young co-founded Red Hat (NYSE: RHT), the open-source software company that gives hardware and software vendors a standard platform on which to certify their technology. Young’s success at Red Hat won him industry accolades, including nomination as one of Business Week’s “Top Entrepreneurs” of 1999.

In 2000, Young co-founded the Center for Public Domain, a non-profit foundation created to bolster conversation of intellectual property, patent and copyright law and the management of the public domain for the common good.
 


In 2003, Young purchased the Hamilton Tiger–Cats of the Canadian Football League and currently serves as the league’s vice chairman. He is also part of the ownership group of the Carolina RailHawks professional soccer team.

Young will speak Monday, November 22 from 9 a.m. to 10 a.m. at the Direct Energy Centre in downtown Toronto, home of Print World. The show’s third day begins immediately after Young’s keynote at 10 a.m.

Print World 2010 runs from November 20-22 at the Direct Energy Centre, Exhibition Place in Toronto. For more information on the show, visit Printworldshow.com.
