Adam Swart

CEO of Crowds on Demand

Guest

Adam founded Crowds on Demand in October 2012 to revolutionize the ‘people’ business and to give everyone the ability to have experiences usually reserved for ‘A-list’ celebrities. Before starting Crowds on Demand, Adam worked as a Reporter for AOL’s Patch sites, in product management positions at various Bay Area start-up companies, and as a political organizer for campaigns including Jerry Brown’s successful election as Governor of California in 2010. Adam has long been an active investor. He first developed his interest in the market at the age of six years old when he decided Southwest Airlines was a good company to invest in due to the Honey Roasted Peanuts. He continues investing in quality businesses to this day. In his free time, Adam can be seen running on LA’s beautiful beaches, piloting small planes, and exploring the world.
