BIO: A Southern California native, 26-year-old entrepreneur Kramer LaPlante has been a go-getter since he was young. Growing up active — surfing, skating, pursuing sports — he’s always been one to capitalize on an opportunity, and started his first business in high school. He then dropped out of college to launch MVMT, at first a crowdfunder project he spearheaded alongside co-founder and CEO Jake Kassan. As COO, MVMT has since become one of the fastest-growing watch and lifestyle brands in the globe. Kramer’s professional success has caught the attention of the The New York Times, Entrepreneur and Forbes’ prestigious 30 Under 30 list.
