Dmitry Shapiro
Founder, Chief Innovative Officer
Veoh Networks

Dmitry started Veoh Networks in late 2004 with a short to-do list: Democratize. Open the business of television—once strictly a members-only deal—to a virtual community of indie broadcasters. Second, introduce them to their new, global audiences, hungry for a limitless world of compelling programming to fill every niche interest, and desire.

As an accomplished engineer, he knew this was doable. As a creative soul, he knew it had to be done. Dmitry himself was one of those frustrated independent producers, shut out from participating in the TV game with his imaginative talk-show concept. (On "Hot Tub TV," politicians, celebrities and other newsmakers would all be in hot water—literally, working out global issues and swapping pop-culture dish.  Think politically incorrect – in a hot tub).

Before he imagined Veoh, Dmitry built Akonix Systems, one of the leading P2P network security companies with over 1.5 million deployed enterprise licenses in companies such as Viacom, Disney, Newscorp, and Cingular. Before that, Dmitry led the technology groups at CollegeClub, a 4 million member online college community and Fujitsu Telecommunications.

During his youth in Atlanta, Dmitry learned English by watching lots of television, lost most of his Russian accent and gained a B.S. in electrical engineering degree from Georgia Tech.
