1PM – 2PM: Social Media for Filmmakers:
Leader, motivator, self-starter…. Jai Bugarin, a bilingual and bicultural entrepreneur with over 8 years of experience in the digital space. His in-depth knowledge of the social media ecosystem and passion for business strategy and operations has allowed him to build businesses, raise venture capital, lead and empower teams, develop and grow trusted brands, produce engaging content and build large trusted communities across digital platforms. At Maker Studios, his innovative ideas paved the way for the creation of Tutele, one of Youtube’s first original bilingual networks, which included some of Youtube’s most popular Latino content creators. Mr. Bugarin’s dedication and vision for Tutele led him to secure funding from YouTube’s original channel initiative in 2011. His in-depth knowledge of the digital space soon led this strategic thinker to spend his days working on streamlining and improving workflow processes across multiple departments and ultimately overseeing all video production at Maker Studios. This experience provided him with the knowledge and skills he needed to co-found All Day Media, a next generation, multi-platform media company where Mr. Bugarin and his partners raised 2.5M in venture capital from top investors in L.A, San Francisco and New York. All Day grew a highly-engaged community of History and Travel social accounts of over 35M (@earthpix and @HistoryinPics) and built a website with over 45M unique visitors per month dedicated to entertaining and educating millennials. Jai is now focused on utilizing his knowledge to contribute towards making the world a better place. He is currently working on a passion project aimed to inspire others in finding their inner happiness and become the best version of themselves. He is a believer that if we measured success with happiness we would live in a world full of love, support and peace.
