Kayvon Beykpour@kayvz · Co-Founder & CEO, Periscope App
Hi! Kayvon here, I am the CEO and cofounder of Periscope, acquired by Twitter in 2015, which enables anyone to capture or watch a live video broadcast. Prior to Periscope, I led the Mobile division of Blackboard where I also served as a Senior Executive for four years after my startup was acquired.

Chris Sacca@sacca · Chairman, Lowercase Capital
@kayvz One of the toughest challenges for a startup CEO is prioritizing which features to build next. This is particularly true for a product as exciting as Periscope. What guides you in establishing the roadmap and choosing where the team should focus its energy?
Kayvon Beykpour
Kayvon Beykpour@kayvz · Co-Founder & CEO, Periscope App
@sacca hey Sacca. It's a mix of different inputs: 1) Our gut. There are features we just care deeply about experimenting with either because they feel right, or directionally they bring us closer to where we think the product should go. 2) Feedback from Periscopers! We're fortunate in that people who use our Product are comfortable sharing (on Twitter, over email and on Periscope) what they think is missing and what could be improved. 3) Scaling needs. This one is interesting because it's the least predictable. We've had to focus on so many "features" (many of these back-end or infrastructure, and some UX/user-facing) quite simply due to how insanely fast we've been growing. Focusing on this category of development is both necessary (to make sure the experience doesn't cripple as the ecosystem grows) and naturally more disruptive because it was harder to plan for. So the interesting/fun/challenging aspect is balancing inputs 1/2/3 in such a way that it feels like the product is growing, becoming more interesting, and adapting to the growing ecosystem.

@kayvz Well, it has worked extremely well for you so far. So, thanks for sharing how you think about this stuff.

There's lots of action happening in vertical live streaming - Twitch, Twitch for coding, twitch for designers, twitch for ____. How do you see persicope playing in this vertical live streaming segment?
Kayvon Beykpour
Kayvon Beykpour@kayvz · Co-Founder & CEO, Periscope App
@hunterwalk I think there's a fascinating opportunity for live streaming use cases to evolve towards a broader use cases, but right now our focus for Periscope is staying true to why we started the company in the first place: to show the world through someone's eyes. We need (and want) to nail that.
Ryan Hoover
Ryan Hoover@rrhoover · Founder, Product Hunt
@kayvz you've compared Periscope to teleportation, which I think is an apt reference considering where it's going. I'm super excited to see how livestreaming changes the way we see the world and new technology like VR has a huge potential to influence this space. P.S. Here's a list of teleportation apps".

@kayvz Hey Kayvon - Thanks for joining. I know it's impossible to know for sure, but I want to ask: How would things have been different if Twitter had not acquired you and you'd built this independently? I know you and @Jess crafted a master deal that made everyone happy - How should other companies who have similar opportunities structure the deal to make sure everyone wins?
Kayvon Beykpour
Kayvon Beykpour@kayvz · Co-Founder & CEO, Periscope App
@eriktorenberg Hey Erik. Thanks for making this whole thing (PH) and inviting me. Who knows! I think being apart of Twitter (one of the most recognizable and pervasive brands in the world) really helped our reach and distribution out the gate, and on an ongoing basis. So it would have been a lot harder for us to get out of the Silicon Valley echo-chamber. Most of the compelling and mind blowing use cases of Periscope have been outside of the tech bubble (presidents using Periscope to share with their citizens, journalists using Periscope to cross borders with refugees, citizen journalists using it to share Bangkok bombing aftermath, protests in Baltimore/etc). It would have taken a lot longer for Periscope to have even been known as a tool that these folks knew they could use.

Kayvon Beykpour
Kayvon Beykpour@kayvz · Co-Founder & CEO, Periscope App
@rsarver A random assortment of thoughts: - Both my parents are entrepreneurs, in totally different ways. My dad helped his dad run their business when they moved to SF from Iran. My mom quit her job when I was born to start a home-day-care, which she still runs. Growing up in that environment I think had a huge (if not subconscious) impact on my desire to do build something from nothing - I was really fortunate to spend time at Stanford, surrounded by insanely smart people who had really ambitious ideas and were daring enough to pursue them even if they sounded crazy. - I was really fortunate in that I've been best friends with two chaps, Joe Bernstein and Aaron Wasserman since elementary school. Joe, Aaron and I have "worked" together since we were kids. Having such a tight group helped us all feel like we could pursue any idea together. - Focusing on HCI (human computer interaction) really helped tune my interest / eye towards design and products. I think this just made me more curious about observing the design of all things

@kayvz What were the chain of events and the process that led to your acquisition? [Edited]
Kayvon Beykpour
Kayvon Beykpour@kayvz · Co-Founder & CEO, Periscope App
@sameernoorani 1) Our product (in beta form) felt really special. Our beta users seemed to agree! 2) @jess found us, and introduced us to @dickc and @jack 3) Twitter believed in us, and gave us the opportunity to bring Periscope to life with Twitter's support, in a way that made us still feel like we were running a startup. 4) We decided that Periscope could reach it's potential faster/better/stronger with Twitter' support.

@kayvz Awesome journey and smart choices. All the best going forward! Did you have funding offers at that time? If so, could you share the raise you turned down?

@kayvz is there a live broadcast of this session on Periscope?

Kayvon Beykpour@kayvz · Co-Founder & CEO, Periscope App
@patrickedgett Woah! Good point. I hear there's an app for that! Just doing this on PH this time. Plus, every time I do a Q&A on Periscope I get a text from my mom saying "Your face is too close to the camera" so i thought i'd do this one text-only for once ;)
ED
ED@aten · CEO & Designer, Merchbar.com
@kayvz - How did you guys test and refine the features and functionality of the app prior to officially launching? (from a ux not load/scaling perspective)
Kayvon Beykpour
Kayvon Beykpour@kayvz · Co-Founder & CEO, Periscope App
@aten I wish I had a better answer other than: 1) Our gut 2) Having an incredible early/small team that makes (in retrospect!) great gut decisions, and has the ability to tune/tweak as we iterated quickly. @tyhan1 was a big part of this. I think he's one of the best and insightful UX/UI designers, period. The 9 months of Periscope's development process was basically us building, trying/using, and iterating. Some things felt great, some didn't. We just kept going (and it was sometimes REALLY hard/frustrating) until we got to a place where we felt like we had something special.

What are your thoughts around the live streaming of music events (concerts, club sets etc)? Ignoring the copyright issues for now, it feels like the timing is right to bring more live music to fans through a channel such as Periscope.
Pascal Thellmann
Pascal Thellmann@pascalthellmann · CMO Bounty0x
@kayvz i'm 15 years old and very interested in entrepreneurship. Until now I've never started a project were I earned more than 50$, but I believe that one day my big succes will come. Do you have any stories from your childhood related to entrepreneurship (or an advice)?
Happy Trails
Happy Trails@happytrailsanim · CEO, Happy Trails Animation
@pascalthellmann I would say that entrepreneurship is more about spirit. It is about harnessing the spirit from within the individual.. this is something that can not be taught. So with that in mind keep pushing forward and trying to build up your visions on your own now... start as young as possible. A true entrepreneur never sees failure only opportunities and lessons.

@kayvz Hi Kavyon. Who do you think are your prime users. For what kind of users does periscope make most sense?
Kayvon Beykpour
Kayvon Beykpour@kayvz · Co-Founder & CEO, Periscope App
@mphreak I think our prime customers are: 1) People who want to reach an audience, either because they're sharing something on their mind, or something that's happening in the world around them. A celebrate; a protest; their dog running on the beach; refugees crossing a border; or a fleeting thought they want to share with others. Our job is to give them reach, and to give them that reach quickly and easily. 2) People who want to see the world, now. Our job is to let them do that quickly (literally, FIRST). When something happens in the world, we want Periscope to be the place where you naturally go to. And when somebody you care about is showing something or sharing, you should be able to see that too. That's why, as part of our vision, we think about Periscope (hopefully, in the future) being a platform for "Truth". What you see is happening. It's not edited or filtered. It's real. It's now. It's truth.

Hello @kayvz! Why did you choose mobile over a web based application and what new feature are you most excited about implementing?
Kayvon Beykpour
Kayvon Beykpour@kayvz · Co-Founder & CEO, Periscope App
@alanaut24 We wanted Periscope to be a way for people to discover the world, through other people's eyes. Most of the interesting things happening in the world aren't in your living room where your desktop/laptop is :) So building a tool for people to use on the device in their pocket was important.
Brent Summers
Brent Summers@brentsum · Founder, Code-Free Startup
@kayvz Thanks for coming by: 1. if you could go back to the earliest days of Periscope, what would you change and why? 2. How's your experience been working with @sacca? :)
Chris Sacca
Chris Sacca@sacca · Chairman, Lowercase Capital
@brentsum I will say that I have felt very lucky to "work" with @kayvz. To be clear, I am just a user and an investor in the parent company, no actual working together. But, during the pre-launch and launch period I became pretty obsessed with Periscope. That meant that Kayvon had to weather a barrage of 24/7 DMs from me, at least a hopefully small percentage of which were helpful to him and the team. But to sum it up, I am a fanboy.
Kayvon Beykpour
Kayvon Beykpour@kayvz · Co-Founder & CEO, Periscope App
@brentsum 1. it may sound cheesy, but i'm not sure I'd change a thing. Every roadblock, challenge and point of frustration we got to helped us ultimately get to where we are now. 2. @sacca and I got introduced in the few weeks leading up to our launch. It's rare to see somebody so excited about a product, and to be so proactive about evangelizing it with friends/peers. So I have huge appreciation for how much time/effort he spent in spreading the word and believing in the product.

Kayvon Beykpour
Kayvon Beykpour@kayvz · Co-Founder & CEO, Periscope App
@nathangrant97 Build stuff! A lot of stuff! Helpful tools for yourself, apps for friends, wild ideas you want to try. Just build a ton of shit and make it better. You'll learn a ton every time. Get a job someplace where you can be a sponge and learn a ton. From smart people around you. From a boss you look up to. For a company that you think is doing something important.

How long have you worked on Periscope before the acquisition? How different was the app from the current version? Was it even called "Periscope"? Yeah I know, 3 questions :3
Kayvon Beykpour
Kayvon Beykpour@kayvz · Co-Founder & CEO, Periscope App
@ldesserrey We started the company in Feb 2014. Joe and I were thinking about and working on the idea a few months prior to that. It wasn't always called Periscope. It was first called Bounty :) I'll do a Periscope sometime soon showing the old mockups / presentations that we pitched and how it evolved!

Danny Espinoza
Danny Espinoza@abcdannye · Founder @looksyvideo
@kayvz the popularity of livestreaming is running into the same issue as any medium that grows this fast, namely the increasingly long tail of content -- what are your thoughts on curation of streams for your audiences?
Kayvon Beykpour
Kayvon Beykpour@kayvz · Co-Founder & CEO, Periscope App
@dannyjespinoza Hey Danny. Great question. As the sheer volume of content has been exploding, I think as a platform we must focus on improving content discovery so you can find the best things, and find them quickly. This is another area that we knew had huge exploration opportunities, but didn't think we'd need to focus on so quickly. For example, we always dreamed of having a map feature to show real-time streams on a map. But we figured it would take months (if ever) to have enough things live to justify having a map...
Danny Espinoza
Danny Espinoza@abcdannye · Founder @looksyvideo
@kayvz thanks for sharing, Kayvon. I imagine keyword analysis of the chat associated with each stream could be used to find "like" streams; lots of potential here -- can't wait to see where Periscope ends up going!
Irina Jordan

@kayvz Do you pay attention to your competition and adjust accordingly or do you chart your own course and make independent moves? Thanks!
Kayvon Beykpour
Kayvon Beykpour@kayvz · Co-Founder & CEO, Periscope App
@irinajordan I think it's smart to know your competition, but dangerous to obsess over your competition. I think Periscope is scratching the surface of it's potential right now, so the most prudent thing for us to do is buckle down and work towards our vision! Obsessing over what other people are doing is almost always a total distraction.
Michael Flores
Michael Flores@mike_flores23 · Crafting Ms, Vs, and Cs
Hey @kayvz, thanks for doing this chat :). I'm wondering how you thought about distributing Periscope before press coverage/acquisition made it an almost foregone conclusion that there'd be at least a good amount of users trying it. If Periscope had launched in a much quieter environment and smaller initial base, how would you have approached expanding that, especially if you wanted to focus on organic growth? Semi-related, can you speak at all on how engagement has changed among the viewership since Periscope started? It used to be a lot of quick browsing/popping into and out of streams, but seems to have settled down.

@rakeshagrawal I'd like to see a Periscope from space. If @Cmdr_Hadfield were still up there, he'd be perfect. He has such a great/intuitive understanding of the medium, and he's brilliant. I'd love to see @elonmusk step foot on Mars live on Periscope :) I'd love to see a US President address the nation on Periscope (how often do we get to be in the palm of a President's hands? Just real-talk. No teleprompter). I'd love to see journalists and citizen journalists continue to share some of the tragic things that are happening around the world so that we can learn and empathize with what's happening in places like Syria / the middle east (where there are 60+ million refugees who are literally walking across borders to get out of harms way). Related note: follow @ronzheimer on Periscope and twitter.

@kayvz @sacca the most obvious question I think on everyone's mind is why isn't this discussion on periscope? Or at least partially on periscope? Secondly, there must be plans for a hardware attachment that allows for streaming through the mobile device not limited to the phones built in camera. A bluetooth attachment.

@conorcusack There's a professor in Turkey who uses Periscope to teach geometry to Turkish students who either don't have access to geometry material, or who just want extra help. He regularly has hundreds of viewers and does interactive learning (asking students questions and having them suggest answers) throughout the Periscope.

@Kayvz during the NBA finals and especially immediately after the final game ended, Periscope was *the* medium where I was following the event and the action in the stadium.

Jared Schnelle@schnelle · Founder, Forge
@kayvz At Forge we're interested in the possibility of including periscope style live video for our creators to use when talking to fans about their projects. Since this would be a feature of our product and not the product itself, it doesn't make sense to reinvent the wheel. Do you anticipate partnerships or any type of API down the road for integration with your platform? Early on we may "hand off" the experience to Periscope, but eventually a native experience is preferred.
