“Digital is absolute. It’s not a panel, which is what you get from TV,” Founder Ben Grubbs says.
Ben Grubbs is the founder and CEO of Next 10 Ventures, an investment firm that incubates and accelerates businesses within the global creator economy. Prior to launching Next 10, Ben spent 15 years in Southeast Asia helping to grow the Yahoo! broadcast business, spearheading eBay’s marketing efforts and leading Turner’s interactive media group. Most recently, he served as the Head of YouTube Kids in APAC and then the Global Head of Top Creator Partnerships for YouTube.
Ben and I enjoyed a wide-ranging conversation on the latest episode of “All Things Video,” from his experience building commerce and media businesses in APAC to his decision to launch a venture fund focused on the next 10 years of creator-driven innovation. It all started with a Yahoo! summer internship in Singapore that sparked his interest in Asia’s emerging markets.
