Nathan Chan Publisher & Editor, Foundr Magazine

Nathan is the Publisher & Editor of Foundr Magazine, a digital magazine for young entrepreneurs on the App Store & Google Play store. Nathan launched Foundr in March 2013 from his bedroom and in a small period of time it has become a top 10 ranked ‘Business & Investing Magazine’ on the app store. As publisher of Foundr Nathan was a finalist for Publisher of the Year for 2014 in the Digital Magazine awards. He has had the pleasure of interviewing some of the most accomplished entrepreneurs around the world. Notably Richard Branson, Arianna Huffington, Tim Ferriss, Seth Godin and many more.

At the end of 2014, Nathan decided to give this Instagram thing a shot for Foundr Magazine as he was frustrated with the results he was getting from other social media channels unless he paid them. He posted a few photos on his Instagram account and noticed a massive spike in sales for the magazine. After that spike he realised he was onto something. Since that day, this has taken Nathan down a path of hacking the hell out of Instagram and learning from some of the fastest growing accounts on Instagram to work out how to turn it into a MASSIVE business growth and sales channel. During the period of 5 months on Instagram with Foundr Magazine, Nathan has grown the @foundrmagazine account from 0-125,000 super engaged followers, grown his email database by 20,000+, generated 100’s of thousands of FREE clicks and impressions and exploded his business and it is now one of the fastest growing business related Instagram accounts around the world.
