Throughout the years, Rifkin has served as a guest speaker or lecturer at numerous institutions, including NYU Stern School of Business, UCLA Anderson School of Management, The Yale Club of New York, and the Brookings Institute. He served as a lead judge for multiple elevator pitch competitions and was an initial Founding Member of the Blackstone Launch Pad. He has been featured in The Wall Street Journal, Fortune Magazine, and on CNBC.

He is known for his candor, humor, and his unorthodox approach to business and living. Colleagues and clients say that his greatest strength is his ability to authentically connect with people and walk the line between being a champion and a realist.

Marc Ross, Co-Founder

A highly experienced marketing executive with over 20 years of consulting and corporate marketing expertise. His extensive history in business development and digital marketing strategies spans multiple industries and company sizes.

His digital marketing experience pre-dates Google with one of the first e-commerce sites focused on name-brand watches, launched in 1997. Post-acquisition by the largest online luxury retailer in 2000, he ran combined call center operations before shifting back to marketing. This leadership role included the affiliate program launch, which covered 18% of the company’s pre-IPO revenues, performance marketing, search engine optimization, and media buying.

After spending several years in commercial real estate while focusing on raising his children, he made the inevitable shift back to marketing and digital strategies. Since then, he’s concentrated on agency management, start-up consulting, and his current role as the VP of Marketing for one of the country’s largest privately held providers of outsourced accounts receivable management and business process outsourcing.

Marc resides in Miami, Florida with his wife and their four children.
