While attending Dartmouth College in 2001, Mike recognized the need for a greater digital visibility for all businesses. Wpromote was born out of Mike’s Dartmouth College dorm room in 2001 as a way to help companies garner and increase their online presence through online advertising.
After narrowly avoiding the pull to investment banking and graduating with a degree in Economics and Computer Science in 2003, Mike returned to his hometown in Los Angeles to grow Wpromote. After recruiting two childhood friends to join the Wpromote team (who remain the COO and CRO and, ironically enough, are both named Mike), the three men began expanding. The team moved Wpromote into high-end search engine marketing and developed the technology platform that would become revolutionary for online marketing and the backbone of Wpromote’s offerings.
