Boris Veldhuijzen van Zanten, CEO and co-founder of The Next Web, discusses why he and his co-founder created the company and how much it has grown today. In 2006, the two founders were looking for an event to showcase their new start-up, and when they couldn't find one, they decided to create their own.
