Brian Wong is the 26­year­old co­founder and CEO of Kiip. Kiip (pronounced “keep”) is a mobile

consumer engagement platform that advertises in “moments” in 10,000 apps. Kiip is credited

with the creation of “moments marketing”, which involves brands marketing to consumers in the

right timing and mindset, based on their mobile behaviors. Backed by Verizon Ventures,

American Express Ventures, US Cellular, Interpublic Group, North Atlantic Capital, Hummer

Winblad, Relay Ventures, True Ventures, and others, the company has raised over $35 million in

Kiip has been recognized by Forbes as one of the “4 Hot Online Ad Companies to Put on Your

Innovative Companies in the World.” Once the youngest person to ever receive venture capital

funding, Brian received his Bachelor of Commerce from the University of British Columbia at

age 18, after skipping four K­12 grades.

Brian has been recognized with many awards for his accomplishments and leadership,


● Forbes’ “30 under 30” for three years in a row, and then a judge for 2016

● Business Insider’s “Top 25 Under 25 in Silicon Valley,” “30 Under 30 in Advertising” and

accelerate success. The book has been translated into Simplified Chinese and Arabic, and is
