Chip Conley


Chip Conley holds a Bachelor of Arts and a Master in Business Administration from Stanford University, and an honorary doctorate in Psychology from Saybrook University. He serves on the boards of the Burning Man Project and the Esalen Institute.

Bestselling author, hospitality entrepreneur, disruptive business rebel and social change agent, Chip Conley is a leader at the forefront of the sharing economy. At the age of 26, he became the founder of Joie de Vivre Hospitality, a company that took an inner city motel and turned it into the second largest boutique hotel brand in the world. Chip was CEO of his innovative company for 24 years before accepting an invitation from the founders of Airbnb to help transform a promising home sharing startup, into the world’s largest hospitality brand that it is today. Furthermore, that same year, with the purpose of sharing his passion for travel and the world’s best festivals, Chip founded Fest300, a company in charge of curating a list of the world’s best music festivals.

He is the founder of the Celebrity Pool Toss, a fundraising event that has raised millions for the Tenderloin neighborhood (where he opened his first hotel), and San Francisco’s Hotel Hero Awards, which shine a light on the unsung heroes serving hotel guests every day.
