Jake Kassan - Co-Founder / President, MVMT
Born and raised in Valencia, California, 28-year-old entrepreneur Jake Kassan (pronounced: kass-in) knew he wanted to run his own business from a young age. In his early teens, however, he founded two businesses which eventually failed. Discouraged but not defeated, Jake turned his failures into fuel when he dropped out of college to pursue the dream of shaking up the watch industry. This manifested into a global success — MVMT. As President and Co-Founder, Jake has scaled one of the fastest-growing watch and lifestyle brands in the world. His tenacity as a businessman and leader has since caught the attention of the The New York Times, Entrepreneur and Forbes’ prestigious 30 Under 30 list.
