Randi Zuckerberg is an entrepreneur, investor, bestselling author, and tech media personality. You may also have heard of her work at, you know, a tiny little internet company called Facebook, where she created and ran the social media pioneer's marketing programs from 2005-2011.
Randi is the founder and CEO of Zuckerberg Media, developing technology, content, and live events all with the mission of putting intelligent, tech-savvy, entrepreneurial women and girls at the centre of pop culture and media. The company services the needs of high profile organisations and Fortune 500 companies such as The Clinton Global Initiative, Cirque du Soleil, Conde Nast, and PayPal.
A Harvard graduate, Randi hosts a weekly talk business talk radio show, Dot Complicated on SiriusXM. She has two TV shows currently on air: DOT on NBC Universal Kids (winner of Kidscreen's Best New Preschool Series) about a little girl who uses tech to enhance her everyday adventures, and American Dreams on HSN, highlighting entrepreneurs around the country.
She is the best selling author of Dot Complicated, Dot., and most recently, Missy President, about a fourth grade girl who wakes up to find herself elected President after her homework assignment goes accidentally viral online.
Randi Zuckerberg was nominated for an Emmy Award for her innovative blend of online/TV coverage of the US mid-term elections. In 2012, she was the executive producer for a TV docu-series on Bravo about Silicon Valley's startup culture, and she regularly appears on camera as a contributor for The Today Show and The Katie Couric show to discuss life in the digital age.
As if the above was not enough, Randi is also a musician and actress. While she has always performed around the San Francisco Bay Area with her tech cover band, Feedbomb, in 2014, she made it to the big leagues when she starred in Rock of Ages on Broadway for a 30-show run as 'Regina Koontz.' Her performance was so successful she was asked to extend the run for an additional 12 performances.
In her spare time, Randi sits on the board of Professional Diversity Network, a publicly traded company that helps with diversity staffing and training for Fortune 500 companies. In late 2014 she launched her first app, Wake Up World!, tasked with teaching children the story of Rosh Hashanah. Randi is also dedicated to expanding her angel investing portfolio with investments in exciting up-and-coming startups.
But by far, Randi Zuckerberg's favourite and most important job is being a mother. She lives in Silicon Valley with her husband and two sons.
