Big Omaha Video Series: David Hauser of Grasshopper

Omaha October 1, 2010 by Jeff Slobotski

Produced by Silicon Prairie News. Video by Malone & Company. Post-production by Event1 Video.

Today, we're releasing the third presentation in our video series from Big Omaha 2010! This video features our second presenter, David Hauser, co-founder of Grasshopper, Chargify and Grasshopper Labs.

Hauser gave attendees a look into how he and his team have built Grasshopper into what it is today. Giving the backstory and implementation of their creative marketing techniques from viral videos to sending media outlets chocolate covered insects.

And who can forget Hauser rallying the crowd to give each of the following speakers a standing ovation when they took the stage? Memorable, and truly added a special touch to the event.

Make sure to tell David "thank you" on Twitter – @dh – for his time, energy and support of Big Omaha.

Here are links to the videos Hauser showed in his presentation:
