Speaker Presentation: Steve Grove
Grove creates partnerships with news organizations, developing products like YouTube Direct (youtube.com/direct) that allow news organizations to access YouTube's vast market of citizen-generated news clips. He created CitizenTube, a channel on YouTube that curates and promotes citizen-generated news clips from breaking news events like the Middle East protests this spring. Grove also started YouTube's nonprofit program, which allows charity organizations to harness YouTube for their causes. Originally from Northfield, Minnesota, Grove worked at The Boston Globe and ABC News prior to joining YouTube. He received a Master's in Public Policy from the Kennedy School of Government at Harvard University in 2006.
