Forbes sat down with our CEO and Co-Founder to tell the story of how a C-student grew a small NJ-based startup into the tech industry powerhouse it is now. Although Vydia was created from the desire to help video creators, it was the first-hand insights from on-the-job experience that LaManna gained from his time working in the music industry that helped launch the team to profitability. The article talks about how Vydia’s CEO and Co-Founder is not one to go with the flow and follow the crowd, which explains why he didn’t take the traditional path of finishing college and entering the work force the way that many do.
Forbes recognizes LaManna’s passion and tenacity and asks him to advice on how other can strategically leverage opportunity that may not seem obvious at first. Despite leaving college before receiving a degree, Roy was able to launch two successful companies and was recently named to NJBIZ Forty Under 40 awards program, which is more than most will ever achieve.
