Ben Hindman was born and raised in Boston, Massachusetts and received a Bachelor’s degree in Human and Organizational Development from Vanderbilt University (‘07). Shortly after college, Hindman revolutionized the first industry he entered with DC By Foot, a free tour company where profits were generated exclusively from tips. Doubted and criticized by traditional guides for his unique business model, Hindman sold his company (ranked 4th best activity in Washington, DC by TripAdvisor) and moved to New York City to pursue what would prove to be his niche, event management.

He next served as a founding member and Chief Travel Officer of the Summit Series, a retreat organization for young entrepreneurs, which has seen such notable guests as Richard Branson, Ted Turner, and Bill Clinton.

From The Summit Series, Hindman was hired as the National Events Manager for Thrillist.com. At Thrillist, he organized events to showcase local businesses and amplify brand awareness, all while promoting the Thrillist name.

In 2011, after gaining incredible insight and understanding into the events industry, Hindman co-founded Splash (SplashThat.com), an online event-management software company. With over 50,000 registered users and millions having submitted event RSVPs through the platform, Inc. Magazine named Splash a Startup to Watch for 2013.

In addition to Splash, Hindman is an event consultant for such top brands as Samsung, Blackberry, and Bacardi.

Aside from being a trailblazer in event planning, Hindman is a semi-professional beatboxer, and has performed with Naughty by Nature and at the White House — just not at the same time.
