Russell Simmons, Brian Robbins And More Rock IGNITION 2013


Russell Simmons

Russell Simmons, All Def Digital

Russell Simmons turned the music industry upside down with Def Jam Records.


Brian Robbins' Awesomeness TV lights up the mobile phones of those elusive tastemakers, tweens.

Put the two together and you get All Def Digital, the first pure-play music platform for the YouTube age. Just what we like for IGNITION.

Russell Simmons and Brian Robbins are reshaping both business and culture. We’re thrilled that they’ll be sitting down for a free-wheeling conversation with Business Insider's Henry Blodget at IGNITION: Future of Digital. Join them and take a deep dive into the explosive future of digital business at Business Insider's flagship conference, atop New York’s Time Warner Center November 11-13.
