Founder , The IdeaLists

The IdeaLists was founded by ex-magazine publisher Adam Glickman.

At the age of 25 Adam moved to Tokyo, and once there, co-founded Tokion Magazine. He grew the publication from a 2-color, 56-page zine to a full-color glossy title with offices in New York and Tokyo, a conference series, boutique retail shops, collaborative product lines and a documentary film production arm.

By 2006, Adam understood that new technologies would soon irrevocably change media consumption habits. He sold the Tokion brand in 2006 in order to explore what a new media company—one that could best triangulate marketing, technology and content—might look like. Over the next few years he worked in a broad range of strategic and creative roles, consulting for such companies as Wieden & Kennedy, Nike and BBH.

In 2010 he settled on his vision for a new media company—albeit unexpectedly as a BtoB platform opposed to a consumer facing one—with the launch of The IdeaLists.
