Gary Vaynerchuk builds businesses. As one of the earliest adopters using the web for commerce, he took his family wine business and grew it from a $3M to a $60M business in just five years using pioneering digital, content and social marketing techniques. Now he runs VaynerMedia, managing a staff of 600 people across New York, LA and San Francisco established in just 5 years with a London office opening later this year.
Along the way he became a prolific angel investor and venture capitalist, investing in companies like Facebook, Twitter, Tumblr, Uber, and Snapchat before eventually co-founding VaynerRSE, a $25M investment fund.
Gary also hosts The #AskGaryVee Show, taking questions several times a week about social media, entrepreneurship, startups and marketing, giving his answers based on a lifetime of building successful, multi-million dollar companies. It sits alongside the newly launched DailyVee show, an immediately successful fly-on-the-wall documentary which follows him around twice a week during his typically 18 hour hustle packed days. Both episodes garner 30,000 to 50,000 views almost immediately upon launch.
Gary is also a public speaker, delivering keynotes at events like Le Web, SXSW and of course the first VaynerWorld which you can watch here.
He was named to both Fortune and Crain’s 40 under 40 lists in consecutive years, and has been profiled in the New York Times, Fortune and Inc.
