Secret Academy Episode - Owen Fuller
About:

Owen Fuller never thought of himself as an entrepreneur growing up (and even to this day he doesn't necessarily identify himself as one). He planned to major in history and become an attorney, but life doesn't always go as planned. Owen found himself working at a wireless company in sales, but eventually moved into a marketing role after seeing the company take off at an exponential rate due to marketing strategies. Eventually in 2009, he opened his own marketing agency, Fit Marketing, focusing on in-bound marketing and became the 10th fastest growing company in Utah. His success lead to the birth of Qzzr, an interactive quiz tool you may have seen on social media. After securing $2 million in seed funding, his clients now include the likes of IBM, Yahoo, Sports Illustrated, Reddit, Yelp, and many more.
