Kayvon Beykpour, founder and CEO of Periscope.

That can-do attitude, combined with his photogenic looks and personable style, have helped turn Beykpour into one of the tech industry s more visible figures, appearing recently on The Late Show with Stephen Colbert, hanging out backstage at The Daily Show with host Trevor Noah and invited to visit the White House live streamed by Beykpour, of course.

Facebook is pouring its massive resources into live video, turning to high-profile celebrities such as Arnold Schwarzenegger and Vin Diesel to help popularise the concept and show up in news feeds.

This is a market rivals such as YouNow and Stre.am have been pursuing.

Periscope needs to focus on the future , says Mansbach.

That is so far from the truth, Beykpour says, whipping open his app and counting the pins on a global map in the app showing where broadcasts are currently taking place.
