Brian Wong's Biography

Brian Wong, an entrepreneur and the co-founder and CEO of Kiip, stands out as a remarkable figure in the mobile advertising and technology industry. His innovative leadership at Kiip, a mobile rewards platform, has not only catapulted the company into the limelight but also revolutionized how brands connect with consumers through mobile advertising.

Kiip, under Wong’s guidance, has emerged as a force in the tech world, raising an impressive $32 million in funding from notable investors like Verizon Ventures, American Express Ventures, Relay Ventures, and others. This funding milestone reflects the company’s potential and Wong’s skill in navigating the competitive tech landscape. Fast Company’s recognition of Kiip as one of the world’s 50 Most Innovative Companies, Forbes listed it among the 4 Hot Online Ad Companies to Watch, and its inclusion in the Dow Jones FasTech50 List further attest to Kiip’s influential role in the industry.

Wong’s educational journey is as exceptional as his professional one. Skipping four grades in K-12, he showcased his intellectual prowess early on, earning his bachelor’s degree in commerce from the University of British Columbia at the tender age of 18. His achievement of being one of the youngest individuals to receive venture capital funding is a testament to his extraordinary talents and foresight in business.

Wong’s accolades are numerous and distinguished. He has been honored in Forbes’ 30 Under 30 list multiple times (2011, 2012, and 2014), served as a judge for the same list in 2016, and received the Top 20 Under 20 awards for all of Canada. His recognition extends to Business Insider’s Top 25 Under 25 in Silicon Valley, 18 Most Important People in Mobile Advertising, Mashable’s Top 5 Entrepreneurs to Watch, and iMedia 25. AdWeek hailed him as one of Seven Would-be Mobile Titans, and he was also named IMPACT13’s Innovator of the Year, featured in the AdAge Creativity Top 50, and graced the cover of Entrepreneur Magazine in September 2014.

Before founding Kiip, Wong honed his expertise at Digg.com, where he was instrumental in expanding the company’s mobile presence, including the launch of the Digg Android mobile app. His role in forging key publisher and tech partnerships at Digg laid the groundwork for his later success with Kiip.

Wong’s journey is a compelling narrative of innovation, leadership, and unwavering determination. As a speaker, he offers invaluable insights into entrepreneurship, mobile technology, and advertising, making him a sought-after voice in the tech community. His story is not just about achieving success at a young age but also about reshaping an industry and inspiring a new generation of entrepreneurs.
