Episode 20: Dan Fleyshman On Investing, Influencer Marketing, the Trading Card Boom

Boardroom: Out of Office - December 16, 2020 - 1:08:15

When investor and innovator Dan Fleyshman trademarked the phrase "Who's Your Daddy" in high school & turned a merchandise play into an energy drink business that made him the youngest founder of a publicly traded company at age 23, it was just the beginning of his story. On this episode of Out of Office, Fleyshman talks about his investment strategy, his early ventures including the boom and bust of the online poker industry, and what "influencer marketing" meant to him in the pre-social media world. Now, he's leveraged that knowledge as founder of Elevator Studios, managing an army of social media influencers and brand campaigns for large businesses. Fleyshman also reveals what's next in the booming trading cards industry and why he co-founded the trading card shop Cards and Coffee and the social-commerce platform Coffee Breakers with Steve Aoki and DJ Skee, turning the "old school" trading card shop model on its head.
