About Jen O'Neal
Jen O’Neal gives the OTHBT a window on the evolution of radically different consumer models that will change the way we get the things we want and need.
Jen is Co-Founder & CEO of Tripping.com, a global network of travelers who believe travel is more meaningful when you can make social and cultural connections with locals – and occasionally share or be offered a spare bedroom or a home-cooked dinner invitation. She was employee #5 and later marketing director for Stubhub and also helped launch collaboratively-oriented consumer websites in Costa Rica and the U.K.
Not surprisingly, Jen is extraordinarily passionate about travel and meeting people. She lives in San Francisco.
