Co-Founder, CollegeHumor

Ricky Van Veen co-founded CollegeHumor.com from his Wake Forest University dorm room in 1999, and built it into one of the Web’s breakout comedy sites. In 2006, he sold control of the company to IAC, and since then he has been focused on video, both for his original site and for Notional, a production company that creates hit shows like Food Network’s Chopped. Coffee Town, his first movie, is slated for release this year.
