Semiconductor Veteran of over 20 years working at Intel and several prominent startups like Cyrix and Transmeta. I was a co-founder in an FPGA startup for nearly 5 years and now work with a leading edge non-volatile memory startup building Resistive RAM memories, which will eventually take the place of Flash as a lower power, higher performance and more economical solution. I write occasionally on the mobile markets and the semiconductors that power them. Transmeta was the company that first highlighted the need for all day computing in the PC market. I was proud to be a part of the launch of the first truly low power x86 processor, which Intel then had to address.
I've built businesses all my life.
In my 20s I joined my family liquor store Wine Library and helped grow it from $3-$60 million dollar revenue business in only a few years. During this time, I launched winelibrary.com, one of America's first wine e-commerce sites.
In 2009, I started VaynerMedia along with my brother AJ. We're a social-media-focused digital shop that helps Fortune 500 brands tell their stories and drive their business results. We currently have five locations: New York, London, Los Angeles, San Francisco, and, Chattanooga, TN.
In 2014, I launched VaynerRSE, a $25 million seed fund that invests in and launches the next generation of world-changing technology companies. In 2015, I launched VaynerCapital. More on that very soon.
In 2014, I also launched The #AskGaryVee Show, a YouTube show and podcast that answers your questions on business, entrepreneurship, marketing, and more.
Along the way, I've written four NYT-Bestsellers. Whenever I can get a scrap of free time, I'm answering the tens of thousands of tweets and messages from the Vayner Nation, and showing up on TV in places like ABC News, ABC Nightline, Bloomberg TV, CNBC, CNN, Late Night With Jimmy Fallon, Late Night With Seth Meyers, and The Ellen DeGeneres Show.
I was named to both Fortune and Crain's 40 under 40 lists in consecutive years, and have been profiled in the New York Times, Fortune, and Inc.
Company President, publisher of online workplace training. Over the past 40 have headed a CPA firm, founded an early-tech business services enterprise, acquired and ran a software company, and founded my current business in the Software as a Service space.
I love tech, and I'm usually overweight in tech stocks. I frequently take options positions, again usually in tech stocks. I need to stay abreast of technology for my business so I'm comfortable with my lack of portfolio diversification; maybe a little too comfortable.
Retired. Senior Partner of OTA Services, LLC a company providing high density compaction equipment to the industrial and commercial market. Former Director of Sales and VP North America for a Fortune Five Hundred company servicing the waste disposal industry. Have been an investor since 1968.
