Josh Lamb

CEO & Founder

Lamb has proven himself a business innovator, bringing a fresh vision and bold approach to industry leaders, such as Frito Lay and Robert Half International. By 2008, Lamb had dumped the traditional business world for the uncharted digital realm, where he developed a new, innovative means of cultivating engaged online audiences that attracts content providers, brand partnerships and new revenue opportunities. In 2009, Lamb co-founded The Shadow Gang, a transmedia content development company built to develop an original experience called BZRK partnered with best selling author Michael Grant and Egmont Publishing. In that experience, a new theory was tested that a multi-platform narrative experience could help build an audience and global reach. With the sales of foreign book rights in over 14 countries and movie option rights to Sony Pictures within a year of fruition and prior to the mainstream book launch, it worked. From that extensive experience combining new technologies with content, Lamb and CTO, Steve Harshbarger developed Multipop. Built with content creators and their publishers at the core, Multipop can transform video with interactive content. In minutes and with virtually any platform add a variety of content items like merchandise, advertising, commentary and voting, all without disrupting the core experience. His goal help producers deliver effective money making content and deliver great user experiences to the audience, everyone can win!
