Jake Winebaum is the founder and chief executive officer of Business.com. The idea for Business.com emerged from Jake's experience in the world of business publishing and his belief that the Internet will become the dominant medium for business information, communication, and marketing. Jake is also co-founder of eCompanies with partner Sky Dayton. Prior to Business.com and eCompanies, Jake worked for The Walt Disney Company for more than seven years. Most recently, he served as chairman of Buena Vista Internet Group (BVIG), which included Disney.com, ESPN.com, ABCNews.com, ABC.com, and Family.com. Prior to this role, Jake served as president of Disney Online, where he led the team that developed the strategic and creative plan for Disney's expansion into the Internet. Jake's interest in the web began when he was the editor and publisher of FamilyPC magazine, where he noticed the large increase in families logging on to the Internet. He suggested that Disney develop an Internet strategy, which he later created and executed. Before Disney Online, Jake was president of Walt Disney Magazine Publishing. He also founded both FamilyFun and FamilyPC magazines and served as president, editor and publisher of both publications. Jake sold FamilyFun to The Walt Disney Company in 1992. Prior to FamilyFun, Jake served as senior vice president of marketing for five years at U.S. News & World Report. He also founded and served as president of U.S. News Productions, a television production company. Prior to that position, Jake worked for Time Warner at Fortune and Time magazines. Jake's expertise and contributions to the Internet industry have been recognized by Time magazine, which awarded him a place in the Top 50 Cyber Elite, and Wired, which named him one of the Wired 25. He is a Dartmouth College graduate and an avid skier, mountain biker and runner. Jake is married and the father of two daughters.
