Benjamin Grubbs is an industry veteran with 20+years experience in online video and the creator economy. He’s held leadership positions at Turner Broadcasting, eBay, Yahoo and most recently YouTube where he was the Global Head of Top Creator Partnerships and a founding member of YouTube Kids. Since his time at Google, he's founded Next 10 Ventures, a venture group solely focused on the creator economy and most recently this year co-founded Creator+ where he’s building a studio and a streaming service to give big-name creators a platform for feature films. Benjamin learns a ton about online video consumption and emerging platforms from observing his kids and how they interact with new media. As a father of 3 of which his youngest is currently seven, he's excited to have at least another decade of watching the evolution of his kid's consumption habits in his household. You can follow Benjamin on LinkedIn, Twitter (@bjgrubbs) and subscribe to his at benjamingrubbs.substack.com to learn all things on the creator economy.
