Cause an Affect

Faces of Marketing podcast: Allie Magyar, founder of HUBB

Episode Summary

Allie Magyar is founder + CEO of event tech software Hubb and owner of Dynamic Events. Failure is a word that no longer scares this serial entrepreneur, who thrives in the fast-paced world of events, tech - and cars. In high school, Allie was absorbed in import car culture. Turning wrenches and cruising Broadway at all hours would accelerate to bootstrapping and putting on her own car show at 18. Though for a moment she thought she might be a music teacher, she quickly dropped her flute and was drawn back into the events world. Off her early success, she built up a 6-year career running car shows. At a pivotal moment, she found herself on the Portland Expo Center floor, $100,000 in debt at age 24. Nowhere to go but up.
