Jamie Bolding (CEO - Jungle Creations)

Jamie founded Jungle Creations out of his mum's spare room in July 2014. What started as a Facebook page called Viral Thread has now evolved into a multi-platform media company that generates over 3 billion video views every single month. Those numbers make Jungle Creations the 6th most viewed media property in the world and has attracted the likes of Mondelez, Unilever and Disney for branded content. This is Jamie’s third venture after 2 successful startups throughout his years at the University of Manchester. It was here where he learnt the value of social media and its ability to not only drive huge amounts of traffic but also connect with audiences in a way previously impossible. Jungle Creations has been bootstrapped since day 1 and is 100% owned by the team. Their projected revenue for the year ending July 2017 is £10m.
