对话天才少年Brian Wong

Brian Wong


移动广告平台Kiip的华裔创始人,

传说中的天才少年,

今年25岁。


外界评论称,Brian Wong看上去像14岁的中学生,说起话来像个28岁的MBA,语言的流利程度与老练的气质,完全猜不出他是个90后。

16岁创办人生中第一家公司FollowFormation(Mashable称该服务是关注Twitter上顶级博主最容易的方式)。

2010年Brian Wong被招入硅谷科技天才Kevin Rose所创办的Digg工作,领导开发并发布Digg的Android版应用,但五个月后因为种种原因被果断解雇。被解雇之后,他就与Digg前员工Courtney Guertin和他们共同的好友Amadeus Demarzi联合创立了Kiip。

凭借Kiip的成功,Brian也斩获一系列殊荣,并在20岁的时候入选福布斯Forbes 30 Under 30,也入选mashable最值得一看的青年企业家Top 5,还被BI评为移动广告行业最重要的18人之一。有趣的是,解雇他的前老板Kevin Rose(Digg创始人)在Brian成名后也曾对他做过专访。


让我们一起走近这位天才少年。

关于Brian Wong的更多介绍:

Brian Wong is the 25-year-old co-founder and CEO of Kiip. Kiip (pronounced “keep”) redefines how brands connect with consumers through a rewards platform that targets “achievement moments” in mobile games and apps. This innovative approach to mobile marketing creates meaningful engagements between consumers and brands. Backed by Verizon Ventures, AmEx Ventures, US Cellular, North Atlantic Capital, Hummer Winblad, Relay Ventures, True Ventures, and others, the company has raised over $32 million in funding to date.

 

Kiip has been recognized by Forbes as one of the “4 Hot Online Ad Companies to Put on Your Watch List,” named on the Dow Jones “FasTech50” and is listed on Fast Company’s “50 Most Innovative Companies in the World.” Once the youngest person to ever receive venture capital funding, Brian received his Bachelor of Commerce from the University of British Columbia at age 18, after skipping four K-12 grades.

 

Brian has been recognized with many awards for his accomplishments and leadership, including:

 

—— Business Insider’s“Top 25 Under 25 in Silicon Valley”,“30 Under 30 in Advertising”and  “18 Most Important People in Mobile Advertising”

——Forbes’“30 under 30” for three years in a row, and then a judge for 2016

——Mashable’s “Top 5 Entrepreneurs to Watch”

——iMedia’s top “25”

—— AdAge's “Creativity Top 50”

—— Canadian Business’ Change Agents for 2016

 

Before starting Kiip, Brian led key publisher and tech partnerships at the social news website Digg.com, where he accelerated the company’s mobile presence by launching the Digg Android mobile app.

 

Brian launched his first book, The Cheat Code, in September 2016, published by Crown Business / Penguin Random House. The Cheat Code contains 71 bitesized and virtually effortless shortcuts to get a leg up on the competition, garner attention for creative thinkers and their ideas, and to accelerate success. The book has been featured by Forbes, CNBC, Elle, The Telegraph, The Globe and Mail, and many more publications around the world, and is quickly becoming the go-to book for entrepreneurial and intrapreneurial advice for our generation.
