Secret Academy Episode – Dan Fleyshman

At the age of 17, Dan Fleyshman took his college fund savings of $43,000 and invested it into his trademarked ‘Who’s Your Daddy’ brand. From there Dan put the ‘Who’s Your Daddy’ name on everything from BBQ grills to apparel. His big break came when a $9.5 million licensing deal with STARTER came to fruition that put his clothes in six major department retail stores. During this time the energy drink phenomenon was booming and Dan launched an energy drink under the same name into 55,000 retail stores. At the age of 23, Dan took his company public and became the youngest CEO of a publicly traded company. 10 years after the birth of ‘Who’s Your Daddy’ Dan resigned and launched Victory Poker, the 3rd largest online poker site until US regulations shut down online gambling in 2011. Seeking his next venture, Dan is now involved in Celebvidy, a new social media platform and app that allows consumers and celebrities to connect with each other starting at a small fee. If Dan isn’t doing fundraising events for the homeless or advising his 18 other companies, you may see him playing poker among the regulars like Dan Bilzerian or other former WSOP winners.
