Live to Launch – Featuring Kenny Tomlin – Serial Entrepreneur, Investor, & Advisor

January 12, 2023 @ 3:00 PM - 4:00 PM CST


Join Matt Fifer for this series of conversations celebrating the life, work, and legacy of some of the entrepreneurs who are changing the game of retail; either with category disrupting products or with innovative ideas, insights, and solutions that are impacting how products are designed, manufactured, sourced, shipped, promoted, shopped, purchased, and consumed.

Matt’s guest for this conversation is Kenny Tomlin; serial entrepreneur, active angel investor, and advisor to numerous technology and digital media companies. He regularly writes and speaks out as an authority on digital marketing, technology, and entrepreneurship.

In 2005, Kenny founded and was CEO of Rockfish, a digital transformation and product development company that was acquired by WPP in 2011.  Kenny also founded and served Executive Chairman of (now Kazoo), a flexible and collaborative employee-engagement platform that was acquired by Vista Equity in 2018.  More recently Kenny has co-founded Subvrsive (, Kasita ( and CourtAvenue ( where he serves as the Executive Chairman and General Partner.

During our conversation, we will get to know Kenny on a personal level, celebrate his life and career, and acknowledge the many people who have made it all possible.  He’ll share inspiration, insight, even words of caution with the next generation of entrepreneurs and the entrepreneurially inclined.

We hope you will join the conversation.
