Hello, I am Anthony Batt
I'm a Los Angeles based entrepreneur obsessed with interactive product design, building digital media products and the growth strategy that builds audience. In 2004, I was the former CEO and co-founder of social media music and celebrity content network Buzznet/BUZZmedia now rebranded as SPINmeida. Prior to that I was the CTO and co-founder of Metapa a media distribution platform for the enterprise that slowly changed into big data company Green Plumb that sold to EMC. It recently spun out to become big data enterprise services company Pivotal Labs.
In 2011, I partnered with Ashton Kutcher, becoming the President of Digital for his startup Katalyst Network. We launched a digital creative culture channel called Thrash Lab on YouTube. As the Executive Creative Director of Thrash Lab I directed a killer team to curate top creative talent to tell amazing stories on cutting edge people and cultures. We also created and produced Prank Lab which launched with our partners Machinima. We also created award winning social media programming initiatives for clients like: Virgin Mobile, GE, Intel, Levi's and Nikon.
Today, I am working with former Metapa founder and engineer on their latest startup Wemo Lab.
I actively work with other entrepreneurs that are creating next generation media and software products. I am a board member of Jesse Von Doom's Cash Music project. Cashmusic is an open source software foundation engineering a next generation platform for musicians and visual artists. I'm a board advisor: to NYC startup Seed&Spark. They're disrupting the indie-film industry by providing a new digital platform to fund and directly distribute films to audiences. M5labs which is taking music discovery and sharing to the next level.
