Team Spotlight #2: Ben Weintraub (CFO)
SAVAGE is thrilled to introduce its CFO, Ben Weintraub.
Ben bridges the gap between the creativity of SAVAGE and the finance world. He has vast experience as a producer, videographer, and photographer, but most importantly, his goal at SAVAGE is to make sure funds are allocated appropriately to maximize efficiency and returns.
Besides being a passionate creator, Ben has always felt strongly about rewarding people for their hard work, especially creators. Legacy platforms take massive cuts from artists, sometimes in excess of 70%.
The video and photo industry for creators have the same issues the music industry has. His desire to contribute to solving this problem for creators around the world was the foundation of the SAVAGE platform, with up to 98% creator payouts, as well as low $10 flat minting fees, rights managed contracts in the NFT metadata similar to how stock photos & videos would work.
Ben has a degree in Business Administration, with a specialization in Finance and initially got involved in crypto 4 years ago when he helped develop the idea of SAVAGE on the blockchain with Luke, the CEO of SAVAGE. In 2018, the two co-founded Savage Stock Media, which was the world’s first 8K+ stock video site.
Today, Luke and Ben’s dream is almost a reality with SAVAGE well-positioned to break into the market to serve creators around the world while offering minimal fees, generous payout structure, and cutting-edge platform features such as fair governance and high resolution 4K/8K uploads.
