Global Conference 2017
Todd Wagner is founder and chairman of Charity Network, a company that harnesses the power of celebrity, technology and media to raise awareness and funds for some of the world's toughest challenges. With a mission to help charities transition from analog to digital, Charity Network has raised hundreds of millions for causes through three digital platforms: Charitybuzz, Prizeo and Chideo. For Wagner, the transition from analog to digital has been a long-time theme of his career. He introduced streaming media to the world in 1995 when he launched Broadcast.com with business partner Mark Cuban. Wagner served as CEO and later sold the company to Yahoo! for $5.7 billion. He co-founded 2929 Entertainment, a portfolio of companies spanning content creation, distribution and exhibition, with Landmark Theaters, 2929 Productions, Magnolia Pictures and AXS-TV. At 2929 he pioneered the practice of releasing films simultaneously in theaters, on DVD and digital. His Todd Wagner Foundation is dedicated to improving the lives of at-risk children.
