Carrie Kerpen is an award-winning entrepreneur, Forbes and Inc columnist, leading podcaster, and keynote speaker who pioneered the content-as-a service industry. As co-founder and CEO of Likeable Media, Kerpen transformed her company from a husband-and-wife start-up into an award-winning digital content studio. Frustrated with the traditional agency model, she invented a category that generates and distributes fast, custom content for large brands. With the launch of Content Cubed ª, Likeable became the first global content-as-a-service provider. KerpenÕs leadership has guided the Likeable team to new heightsÑlanding global clients such as Century 21, StubHub, and Airbnb; achieving CrainÕs «Best Place To Work in NYC» for four straight years; and being named a Top 50 Ad Agency & Top 50 Fastest-Growing Women-Owned Businesses by WPO and American Express OPEN. As a keynote speaker and columnist, KerpenÕs focus is the impact of the digital revolution on womenÕs professional careers, personal lives, and overall senses of self. In 2014, she launched ÒAll The Social Ladies,Ó a podcast for women to share career advice and insight into how social media impacts their personal and professional lives. She then created an event series of the same name, and her All the Social Ladies book is due in late 2016. KerpenÕs path to entrepreneurship began when she married her husband at a baseball stadium in the world’s largest sponsored wedding. The wedding was featured in major media outlets, including The New York Times, ABC World News Tonight, and the CBS Early Show. Kerpen graduated from Emerson College with a degree in marketing and advertising. Prior to launching Likeable, she served in several marketing and sales roles for companies including Cox Radio, Radio Disney, and Polaroid. While at Polaroid she helped with the launch of the Polaroid I-Zone Camera, the #1 selling camera in the country. She currently resides in New York City with her husband and three children.
