Speaking On: Digital Kids Conference on Feb. 18th & 19th
Gregg Spiridellis spent the mid-nineties locked up inside NYC skyscrapers pumping out spreadsheets at Goldman Sachs and Bear Stearns. In 1997, he went to Wharton to get his MBA and unexpectedly fell in love… with the Internet. By the time he graduated, the affair had reached such a fevered pitch that he started an online entertainment company with his brother Evan when it made absolutely no economic sense to do so. Love will do that to you. Five years later, in a pre-YouTube world, Gregg and his brother achieved ‘overnight success’ when their election parody “This Land” became an international viral video sensation, leading ABC News’ Peter Jennings to named them “People of the Year”. Since then, Gregg has helped build JibJab into a globally recognized brand serving a variety of digital entertainment products to hundreds of millions of people around the globe. He is still in love with the Internet, but it has taken a back seat to his wife and three children, with whom he lives in sunny Los Angeles, California.
