"Internet entrepreneur Chris DeWolfe is best known as co-founder and former CEO of MySpace, the social network that redefined the concept of socializing around shared interests. Under DeWolfe’s leadership, MySpace grew exponentially: Launched in 2003, MySpace attracted an average of 300,000 new members each day, and when he left the company in 2009 it had more than 125 million monthly active users from 29 countries around the globe.
In 2010, DeWolfe staked his claim in the rapidly growing social games market. With backing from Austin Ventures, DeWolfe purchased MindJolt, a San Francisco-based social games platform. With more than 20 million active users, MindJolt is among the fastest growing companies in the social gaming space, already profitable through a combination of advertising and virtual goods’ sales. In 2011, MindJolt acquired SGN, a leading developer of social mobile games and Hallpass Media, a portfolio of popular free-to-play online game sites. DeWolfe has a B.A. degree in Finance from the University of Washington and an MBA from the University of Southern California with concentrations in Marketing and Entrepreneurial Studies. DeWolfe serves on the board of the Los Angeles County Museum of Art and lives in Los Angeles."
