Alexis Ohanian, the co-founder of the social media website reddit, will be the keynote speaker at CBI's marketing innovation forum from May 8 to May 9 in New York.

The 13th annual forum is billed as the most compelling and comprehensive marketing meeting for life sciences professionals. iPharma 2014 unites the who's who in the world of digital marketing, strategy, branding, innovation, media, application development and IT to share the latest trends and real world approaches to developing effective, innovative and compliant marketing campaigns.

Ohanian will be joined by Bill Capodagli, a bestselling author of Innovate the Pixar Way.

Now a reddit board member, Alexis focuses on social enterprise Breadpig, publishing authors like xkcd and SMBC -- with profits donated to worthy causes.

He's Y Combinator's Ambassador to the East, co-founder of the non-profit IHAS and wrote a national bestselling book, Without Their Permission. Ohanian also has a show on The Verge called Small Empires about NY tech startups - the founders who create and the people who use these digital platforms. Along the way, Alexis spoke at TED, volunteered in Armenia as a Kiva Fellow, and was named on Forbes 30 Under 30 list two years in a row (and then turned 30). He proudly doodled the logos for all three of his startups and loves his cat, Karma.
