YouTube was created by Steve Chen, Chad Hurley, and Jawed Karim in 2005. When these three friends wanted to share a video from a party, they realized they were on to something. They thought other people would want an easy way to share videos online too. The website they built quickly became the most popular online video community in the world. But how did they go from tech-savvy young adults to founders of one of the Internet’s most visited sites ? Discover how Chen, Hurley and Karim came together to build an international platform for video sharing.
