Do You Stream For USTREAM? An Interview With Brad Hunstable

In this first installment of Born on Tech we are honored and excited to interview USTREAM founder and CEO Brad Hunstable. At this year’s IBM Impact event, we had the chance to sit down with Brad, a pioneer in the field of content creation, streaming and live video and learn how it all began, where it is now and where things are heading.

Founded in 2007 by John Ham and Brad Hunstable, USTREAM was started to solve a problem that Brad, John and many others in the military had while serving; they were missing out on seeing the everyday activities of their friends and loved ones. What started as a technology company designed to solve this problem turned into a powerful tool to connect not only loved ones but people around the world to the most important (and sometimes not) events and information around the world. What happens next? We will let Brad take it from here.

Kicking it off: Getting to know Brad Hunstable and how USTREAM went from IDEA to more than a BILLION views.


It’s all about the data: Learn about how USTREAM has built and supported an infrastructure that can support over 2 Billion hours of live video.



The Crystal Ball: Brad spills a little bit on where USTREAM is going in the next 1 – 3 – 5 years.



Changing The World: We ask Brad how he is using the technology being built by USTREAM to change the world. Find out what he says…


Special thanks to IBM, Midsize Insider, Brad Hunstable and the team at USTREAM for stopping by Born On Tech to share with us, making this possible. Stay tuned for the next episode of Born On Tech where we will be featuring another entrepreneur whose company is changing the way we live through building technology with a vision.
