Growing up in Indiana Kevin Wall learned the power of music to move people while working in his family-owned roller-skating rink called the Roller Dome. After turning 18 Kevin packed his skate key and set his sights on Ann Arbor, Michigan to promote concerts at the University of Michigan.
When ex-Beatle George Harrison’s tour rolled into town looking for a portable stage, he seized the opportunity. His company, Stage One, Inc., became the largest lighting and staging vendor for stadium and arena tours catering to acts such as The Rolling Stones, Led Zeppelin, and The Who.
Since those groovy days, Kevin went on to become an Emmy-winning new media entrepreneur and an early investor in Akamai and Facebook. Ever the social activist, he works to bring mainstream awareness to environmental, economic, and social issues by producing large-scale global music event platforms including Chime for Change, Live Earth, and Live 8.
Kevin is currently CEO of PTK Capital, a family investment fund that focuses on startups that are shaping the future, protecting the environment, and improving the way we live.
