Hear the founder of IMDb, Col Needham, speak on how he went from a devoted teenage movie fan to his sale to Amazon, influencing global movie trends and holding audiences with film leaders at the world’s most important film festivals.

Creative Entrepreneurs are presenting The Founder Files with Col, who is a self confessed movie geek, fascinated by Hollywood glamour, and amazed by the multi-million dollar successes that came out of his passion project documenting the films he loved. According to some he’s the ‘most powerful Brit in Hollywood’.

You’ll have the chance to ask Col about how he turned his passion project into an international business, what it was like to sell IMDb to Amazon in 1998, and why he chose to stay on as CEO.

Creative Entrepreneurs is a truly unique evening of insight, inspiration, creativity and conversation with fellow entrepreneurs from across the creative industries and their allies.

Tickets are free for members and £6 for non-members.
