NDG's got MOJO!



A graduate of the John Molson School of Business, Ashkan Karbasfrooshan has worked at three of the most successful new media startups to originate from Montreal. Today he is the CEO of WatchMojo, a leading producer of premium video content. As Canada's largest YouTube channel, WatchMojo has over 6 million subscribers who spend 900 million minutes on the channel watching over 150 million videos each month. Additionally, WatchMojo provides videos to Yahoo, MSN, Huffington Post, the Montreal Gazette and many more websites. Since 2006, WatchMojo has generated 3 billion views.

Throughout his career, Ashkan has interviewed the likes of Joe Montana and Hugh Hefner, has been quoted in Forbes and Business Week, and has been interviewed on the BBC and CBC. He has published two books, Course To Success: Everything You Need to Succeed Beyond School and The Confessions of Alexander the Great: 33 Lessons in Greatness. When he's not on an airplane returning from New York City, he lives in NDG with his wife and two daughters. I had the pleasure of interviewing Ashkan on the secret to WatchMojo's success, on what goes into the production and planning of their wildly popular videos, and on what Mojoholics can look forward to in the months and years ahead.
