Ify Ifebi

Founder & Chief Everything Officer
Ify Ifebi is an event producer, social entrepreneur and tech founder. She studied marketing at Howard University while simultaneously building her love for events. Her entrepreneurial journey began in the midst of her sophomore year; she became notorious for hosting sold-out events on campus, which led to the opportunity to make her hobby, an actual profession. By 19, she started her first company producing live events for the greater good.

At the age of 23, she had already scored strategic partnerships with Live Nation, Pepsi, Vitaminwater, Red Bull, National Society of Collegiate Scholars, Arik Airlines and a host of other companies that supported her mission. With features in the Complex, Washington Post, WUSA9 and the Examiner, Ify was paving the way for a successful career in live events.

Having personally experienced the obstacles and challenges of organizing vendors at a variety of these events, Ify knew there had to be a way to ease the stress in organizing events, for planners and vendors alike so she set out to create a tool to further support her event production. This idea created a unique opportunity to build innovative event technology and that’s how vendorspace was born.

Today, Ify is the founder and CEO of vendorspace – a matchmaking platform for event planners and vendors to find one another quickly and easily. They are headquartered in Atlanta, GA with a proven philosophy that has been praised by industry leaders and press.

When she's not working on events or vendorspace, you can find her at home working on her other “startup” – her 1-year-old son.
