The Affiliate Ball, the official party on the Monday of Affiliate Summit East 2016, has confirmed that Gary Vaynerchuk will be speaking at the event. Gary took his family wine business and grew it from $3M to $60M in just five years. These days, he runs VaynerMedia, one of the world’s hottest digital agencies. He is also a prolific angel investor and venture capitalist, investing in companies like Facebook, Twitter, Tumblr, Uber, and Birchbox, before eventually co-founding VaynerRSE, a $25M investment fund. And Gary is renowned for his motivational viral videos and podcasts. Usually, you can only see Gary as a keynote speaker at conferences, but you can see him at this special speaking engagement during the VIP hour at Affiliate Ball.
