CEO and Cofounder, Eko
An Israeli music artist turned entrepreneur, Yoni Bloch is the CEO and cofounder of Eko, an interactive entertainment company that designs, develops, markets and enables the creation of interactive videos. The company was born in 2011 when Bloch and his bandmates invented a technology to create groundbreaking music videos with branching storylines. With Eko’s technology, Yoni has helped major music acts including Coldplay, Wiz Khalifa, Led Zeppelin, CeeLo Green and Aloe Blacc, as well as brands like Intel, Pepsi, Coca-Cola, Sony Music Entertainment and Disney Music Group create interactive videos and ads. Backed by Sequoia Capital, MGM, and others, Eko has since launched several interactive experiences, and has a packed slate in 2019.
