Owen Ward founded Disruptive Strategies Group (formerly Off World Enterprise) in 2009 after watching many turn to entrepreneurship following massive layoffs from the Great Recession. Through his experience as Vice President, Theatrical Marketing for Lionsgate, he realized many marketing strategies and tools available to big companies could also be available to these new ventures, and set out to create a space where entrepreneurship could flourish. Working with business, entertainment, non-profit, government and political clients to develop and execute powerful marketing campaigns, he has supported political candidates to victory, launched highly successful business ventures and helped raise over $100,000 for clients in crowdfunding campaigns.
Owen also served as Vice Chair, Government Affairs for the West Hollywood Chamber of Commerce, guiding the organization's discussions on important local business issues such as minimum wage increases, shared economy advancements such as Uber and AirBNB, and development.
Owen received a BA in Broadcast Journalism with a minor in Cinema-Television from the University of Southern California.
