Founder & CEO, Vice Media

Shane Smith co-founded Vice in 1994, when it was an intentionally rough-edged magazine. Since then, he’s kept the same ethos, but the company has evolved: It’s now part ad agency, part production company, with a heavy emphasis on Web video. The Brooklyn-based company has also branched out into TV in the past, and is trying it again this year for HBO, via a show Smith will co-host.
