February 12-12, 2019
San Francisco, USA (United States of America)
Kevin J. Delaney (YC '94) is editor in chief and co-president of Quartz. He was a reporter at The Wall Street Journal for a decade, with that time split between hardship postings in Paris and San Francisco. While covering internet companies such as Google, Twitter, and Facebook for the Journal, he became convinced that newspapers could do much more to ensure that good journalism thrives in the digital age. He returned to New York and became managing editor of WSJ.com, where he led efforts that helped greatly expand the Journal’s online readership and championed innovative journalism projects that went on to win prizes. Early in his career, Kevin was a reporter for SmartMoney Magazine and a TV producer in Montreal. He is a member of the Council on Foreign Relations and was the Hearst digital media professional-in-residence at Columbia University for 2014-15.
