THE WORLD’S FIRST PUBLICLY TRADED PERSON
Mike Merrill lives his live as a corporation trying to increase the value he brings to his stakeholders. He has personified the interaction between people and corporations. Having shareholders changes the way he thinks, acts, and understands the world.
Mike enjoys opportunities to present his way of life as a way to reach new potential shareholders, but also to show how we are all already living “publicly traded” lives. His talks detail the real world examples of giving control of his life to his shareholders and how he has embraced “community through capitalism.”
He has spoken at TEDx, Future Congress, ideacity, Sandwich Summit and CyborgCamp, and his project has garnered a fair amount of press.
Contact Mike here to talk about speaking at your event.
Mike currently lives in Los Angeles, CA and has sold a television show based on his life to Amazon. He was previously the co-founder of a financial tech company, and before that he worked in tech, advertising, and served in the US Army.
