Founder and CEO, W2O
Following a year in which W2O expanded via several high-profile acquisitions and saw revenue breach the $200 million plateau, Weiss and his team turned its attention to — what else? — COVID-19. Weiss became a trustee of The Commons Project, the nonprofit behind a well-regarded coronavirus risk-assessment and mapping platform, while the company backed Ventilator SOS and engineered a push to provide thousands of N95 face masks to medical facilities.
“Everyone feels a sense of, ‘We’re in a fight,’” Weiss told MM+M in April. “People on our team want to feel empowered while they’re sitting at home and coping with work and managing young children. They want to feel like they’re part of the solution.”
