San Francisco - (May 26, 2015) – Periscope, the social networking app that allows users to stream live video to the world, has only been around for a few weeks, but already more than a million users have jumped on board. They’ve blasted hearts, watched celebrities drive their cars and made new friends and now they’ll be able to come together and connect in real life. Periscope Summit is the brainchild of founders Ryan A. Bell & Jamie Grumet. They’ve joined forces with e-celebrity & comedian Bradley Laborman, aka BradmanTV, to take Periscope Summit to the next level.

Jamie was featured on the cover of Time Magazine as an advocate for breastfeeding. She’s also an AIDS Awareness advocate and has more on a weekly agenda than any CEO. Ryan A. Bell is an editor for The Good Men Project, blogger and podcaster who is recognized for his work with youth. He was the recipient of The Presidential Volunteer Service Award for his work with Special Olympics and mentoring Oakland’s youth.

“We wanted to bring amazing people together to further the collaborative community that is being built on Periscope,” said Bell.
