Evan Spiridellis, Co-founder and Head Art Guy, JibJab Media Inc. and StoryBots
Evan Spiridellis co-founded JibJab with his brother Gregg in 1999, with a few desktop computers, a dial-up Internet connection, and the dream of building a big new media brand. Five years later, they achieved ‘overnight success’ when their 2004 election parodies were seen 80 million times around the world, leading Peter Jennings to name the brothers ‘People of the Year’. Since then, the brothers have built JibJab into a leading online entertainment brand, with 18 million registered members sending personalized greeting cards and videos. After becoming a dad, Evan co-founded StoryBots with Gregg, creating a collection of high-quality apps that make learning fun for kids and help parents keep their sanity. As Head Art Guy, Evan leads a team of talented artists, animators, and designers on the company’s mission to make “billions of people happy.”
Gregg Spiridellis, Co-founder and CEO, JibJab Media Inc. and StoryBots
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.
