From his wildly successful role on ABC’s smash hit, Shark Tank, to his distinguished status as a Presidential Ambassador for Global Entrepreneurship, Daymond John has become globally recognized for his relentless commitment to promoting and supporting entrepreneurs. John initially made his mark as the entrepreneur and branding expert behind the groundbreaking lifestyle brand, FUBU, which eclipsed more than $6 billion in global retail sales. From the streets of Hollis, Queens, John started a global movement from the basement of his mother’s house by capitalizing on the then fledgling hip-hop culture. Today, the streetwear market that FUBU pioneered is a $20 billion dollar industry.
Resolved to expand his own brand, John has released three books, the most recent, The Power of Broke, which debuted at number two on The New York Times bestseller list in January of 2016. His previous books, Display of Power and The Brand Within were national bestsellers. In January of 2018, John’s highly anticipated new book, Rise And Grind: Outperform, Outwork, and Outhustle Your Way to a More Successful and Rewarding Life will hit shelves around the world.
Beyond the brands, the television series and the books, John’s commitment to entrepreneurship has been celebrated on a global level. As a recipient of more than thirty-five awards, including the Brandweek Marketer of the Year and Ernst & Young’s Master Entrepreneur of the Year, John serves as CEO of the brand consultancy, The Shark Group, which specializes in brand strategy and development, artist relations and talent development.
