You’re attached to your smartphone. But do you know why? It’s because you have a deep and personal relationship with it, a relationship that you’ve never had with another phone before. It’s a relationship that is almost human. We are in the first of several waves of the anthrotech movement, a movement that is making technology more human. Join Kit Hughes as he dreams about the future of friends, education, advertising, and the workforce in an eerily familiar anthrotech future.

KIT HUGHES, CEO, Look Listen

Kit Hughes is a typical technology entrepreneur. He dropped out of college to start a company (it failed), spent a period of time homeless (by choice), and became an overnight success (slowly).

Eventually, Kit returned to school as a two-time research fellow at the University of Georgia, leading experimental technology research projects and exploring mobile computing and connected devices. He credits his business smarts to his studies in strategy and innovation at MIT.

In his agency career, Kit has worked with a variety of B2B and B2C brands across multiple touchpoints: AnheuserBusch, BP, Char-Broil, Coca-Cola, Flextronics, GE, NCR, Philips and Steve Harvey.

He co-founded Look Listen with his collaborator in punk bands, Paul Sternberg. Under Kit’s leadership as CEO, Look Listen was recognized as one of the fastest growing privately held companies in the US by hitting #408 on the INC 500 in 2015—staying on the list three years in a row—and has been in the top 100 fastest growing companies in Atlanta three years in a row, according to the Atlanta Business Chronicle Pacesetter Awards.
