Masterful Company/Project Builder
My name is Brian Stollery and I am an accomplished C-Suite executive and music/media/entertainment entrepreneur with proven Web2 and Web3 expertise and a global community presence emanating from NYC.
Executive leadership, strategic development, and full-scale company building are core foundations of my DNA, and it would be an honor to lend these skills to a thriving blockchain ecosystem and/or Web3 brand. I’ve architected, grown, and led successful entertainment, partnership, and community engagement initiatives within the music/entertainment and Web3 verticals, including concert and event series, ambassador programs, conferences, and cross-utility NFT ventures, working directly with ABBA, Billy Joel, Jack Daniel’s, Universal Music, Erykah Badu, The Roots, Grateful Dead, Epic Records, and more.
Most recently, I started W3BSTOCK, the on-chain music/entertainment venture that is defining and leading future states of entertainment and culture while fostering Web3 on-boarding. In less than 5 months, we have reached a $57K valuation, 2,700+ Twitter followers, over 10 successful community events and generated a rabidly evangelical community across the Web3 and IRL music/entertainment ecosystem that includes dozens of new NFT collectors who were on-boarded specifically AT W3BSTOCK!
Prior to that, I used my deep production, marketing, and executive management experience to start my own company – Launch Inc - a gamified nightlife passport for consumers and a virtual/hybrid event solutions provider and creative agency for businesses. I built the business almost entirely by hand, generating and driving our marketing, design, sales, KPI tracking, social media, and partnerships, while building a team of 40+ team members around the world. We exponentially grew our revenue and community year over year, while helping thousands of musicians, artists, institutions and brands connect and collaborate when it was vitally needed during the throes of the pandemic.
Prior to this, I headed US Business Development for global centralized music studio sharing app Music Traveler, where I built their partnership program which included Chloe Flower, James Poyser (The Roots) and the piano man himself, Billy Joel. Before that, I built the interactive livestream broadcast infrastructure at Relix Magazine, while being an early core team member of Peter Shapiro and Dayglo Ventures, during the foundational building of Brooklyn Bowl, Lockn' and Grateful Dead 50.
The moment I commit to a venture, I deliver an extremely wide skill set. I’m a visionary leader, connector and innovator, a powerful self-starter, and a strong speaker and written communicator with razor sharp organizational and executive management skills and attention to detail. Additional skills include wide-ranging technical expertise, a powerful degree of ownership in all projects I take on, and a deep music and event industry experience from livestream broadcast architecture/execution to full stack event management and production.
