Reddit AMA (Ask Me Anything) with Brian Lim
Founder/CEO of EmazingLights / iHeartRaves / IntoTheAM
Friday July 24th at 3PM PST
On Friday, July 17, 8:00 Pm est., Shark Tank of ABC will be rebroadcasting its episode featuring Brian Lim, Founder and CEO of Emazing Lights. In the week to follow, on July 24th, Brian will be hosting an AMA through the Electronic Music Sub-Reddit (reddit.com/r/electronicmusic). From the company’s humble Friday Night Lights foundations at an In N Out Parking Lot to their goal of making gloving an internationally recognized sport, fans will have the opportunity to interact with Brian on a personal level.
Brian Lim a raver himself is a serial entrepreneur who has bootstrapped EmazingLights, iHeartRaves and IntoTheAM, into leaders of the Lightshow & festival fashion world. In a mere span of 5 years, Brian has gone from selling from trunk of his car to collectively grossing over $25m in revenues. He now oversees 5 retail shops and over 50 employees internationally.
While developing his passion into a thriving business, Brian has also provided the gloving community with opportunities to get competitively involved. Every Friday, his company hosts Friday Night Lights, a free weekly gloving competition at its retail stores. Brian also annually hosts the International Gloving Championship, which stands as the largest gloving competition in the world with thousands in attendance. In doing so, Brian has turned his hobby into an industry-backed sport and worldwide phenomenon with a cult following of devoted enthusiasts.
Brian’s contributions extend far beyond competitive gloving as well. His Glove4Glove charity program donates a glove set to a paraplegics and others in need for every glove set sold. His mission is to spread gloving and light shows to those who may not have otherwise had the opportunity to discover it. Learn more here: www.emazinglights.com/glove4glove
In the past year, EmazingLights’ gloves have been featured on MTV's America's Best Dance Crew, the Disney Channel, and a variety of mainstream music videos. In addition, Brian and his companies have been featured in business publications such as Inc, Yahoo Finance, CNBC, MSN, CNN and more.
Mark Cuban’s support has been a huge proponent to Emazing Lights’ success as well. In a recent article by Inc. surrounding the company’s success, Cuban states that “Gloving has potential because Brian is driving the sport, and I believe in Brian.” (Full Article Here: http://www.inc.com/john-brandon/mark-cuban-on-why-this-company-grew-2281-in-three-years.html) Mark goes on to speak about Emazing Lights’ remarkable 2281% growth in a mere 3 years.
We look forward to everyone joining us on r/electronicmusic on Friday July 24th at 3PM PST, moving gloving forward, one light show at a time.
