Meet Eric,

our Founder + CEO.

He’s got a glamorous past as a DJ and became one of the youngest executives at RCA Records working on the careers of *NSYNC, Dave Matthews Band and Foo Fighters. He started the award-winning experiential agency, Pop2Life, in 2003 and quickly amassed some pretty rad clients like MTV, Disney, and Showtime, then iHeartRadio, HGTV, DreamWorks, and many more. Along the way, he realized there was a major need for event software that focused on managing and perfecting the experience for attendees (while saving the sanity of event producers). And here we are!

Ribyt was tested and tried by Pop2Life’s team on complex, high-touch events for years before being brought to the masses. Now we’re just a small band of renegades saving the sanity of event planners
one byt at a time.

We have offices in these fine locations
