How do you get funded by Sequoia Capital? That was the topic of a presentation given by Kevin Hartz, CEO and co-founder of Eventbrite, who spoke at Vator Splash September. Sequoia has backed two of Kevin's companies - Eventbrite and Xoom. Sequoia continued to back Eventbrite in the company's most recent $20 million funding round.
