Our Story

Adam and Matthew Toren

ABOUT US

Matthew and Adam Toren grew up learning the entrepreneurial lifestyle from their grandfather, Joe. In fact, he set them up on their first entrepreneurial venture, selling stunt airplanes (at 7 and 8 years old) at a local folk festival. So it began – the entrepreneurial bug had taken its bite.

As soon as they graduated from high school, they took the money they had earned from several small business ventures they started throughout high school and bought a struggling billiard hall in an up-and-coming part of their town.

The Torens poured their blood, sweat, and tears into the project (and even slept on the couches after many long nights). They performed a huge rebranding, devised a number of creative promotions for the venue, and transformed it a wildly popular bar and restaurant. In fact, it because the number one choice for date night! Before they ended their first year in business, they had received an offer to sell.

Adam and Matthew took the deal and then moved on to their next adventure. They found a struggling downtown printing and graphics company, and they used the same philosophies, marketing techniques, and ethics to overhaul and brand that business. Success came quickly again, as they sold it on their eleventh month in business for a sizable profit.

From the printing company, they took their graphic team with them and started a publishing and media company. They have owned and operated several niche market, luxury lifestyle magazines in Canada, Arizona, and California. As a result, they successfully delivered over 3 million copies during the years they were successfully acquired.

Throughout their entrepreneurial lives, the Torens realize that some things have never changed since their first business venture. Their passion to help others start, manage, and grow successful business ventures began early on and continues to inspire and empower them to this day.

In 1999, they set out to build what became the largest and fastest growing social networking forum and community for entrepreneurs in the world, YoungEntrepreneur.com. Young Entrepreneur had become a must-visit resource for startup CEOs, founders, aspiring entrepreneurs, mentors, and investors worldwide, reaching an audience that very few can match. After growing YoungEntrepreneur.com over the course of 12 years, it was successfully acquired by Entrepreneur Media.

The Toren brothers also work with and invest in small business owners and entrepreneurs from a wide variety of industries to help them start, run, grow, and even sell their businesses. They have successfully helped numerous companies level up along the way, including those in the tech space, fashion industry, SaaS market, and many more. They are also proud to be best-selling, award-winning authors of the books “Small Business, Big Vision” and “Kidpreneurs”.
