In 1999, Todd Wagner and Mark Cuban co-founded Broadcast.com, which they eventually sold to Yahoo! for $5.7 billion. On top of being a legendary entrepreneur and businesses man, he's now one of the most impactful and forward-thinking philanthropists in the country. He recently founded The Charity Network, the parent company to three leading digital fundraising platforms: Chideo, Prizeo, and Charitybuzz.
What makes him so special is that he's brilliantly led a variety of successful ventures in a diverse range of fields--from tech to entertainment to philanthropy, and has done so with a keen eye for what makes some ideas last, while others fail.
Wagner joined us in New York City for an IVY Ideas moderated by IVY’s Co-Founder Beri Meric. He shared his personal journey, then some really valuable pieces of advice for any entrepreneur--or, more broadly, for anyone who wants to build anything.
Please enjoy our conversation with Todd Wagner.
