Early life

Andy Hobsbawm was born to historian Eric Hobsbawm and Marlene Hobsbawm (née Schwartz) in London, England. Hobsbawm attended sixth form college in Montreal, Canada but did not go on to university to obtain a degree. He joined a rock band, Tin Gods, after leaving school.

Career

While playing with Tin Gods, Hobsbawm responded to a newspaper ad soliciting entrepreneurs, which led to a position at magazine publisher APT Data. During his tenure at APT Data, Hobsbawm formed Internet Publishing with Eamonn Wilmott to develop the first European e-zine, PowerPC News.

Hobsbawm and Wilmott co-founded Online Magic, a leading British new media company in 1995. Online Magic became the first international web agency and developed the first website that covered a British general election, GE97. Omnicom’s Agency.com invested in Online Magic in 1997 and acquired it in 1998. Hobsbawm, who had served as president of Online Magic, was appointed Agency.com’s chief creative officer for Europe. Hobsbawm became chairman of Agency.com Europe in 2004. He left the company in 2009.

In 2007, Hobsbawm co-founded Do The Green Thing, a social networking site for encouraging people to lead greener lives, with Naresh Ramchandani. In 2008, Hobsbawm presented Do The Green Thing at TED in Monterrey, California. His lecture was later included as a TEDTalk.

In 2011, Hobsbawm co-founded EVRYTHNG, a Web of Things software company.
