John Bohan


I have been an entrepreneur my entire life having run lemonade stands as a kid, a painting business in college and then an events management company in NYC in my early 20’s.   In my late 20’s I got into the dot com business and rode the wave from ’94 - 2002 founding one of the first ad networks and leading it to a public offering on NASDAQ. I then jumped back into the events business and started a conference company that focused on new marketing conferences for traditional companies producing about 100 events in the U.S and Europe. While running the events biz, I started Motion.TV about the same time as the YouTube to aggregate video across the web.   My latest company, Socialtyze, has been telling brand stories in social since 2007 with the desire to completely disrupt the face of advertising as we know it.
