Brad Greenspan is an entrepreneur who has been involved in the founding and development of numerous web properties including MySpace. Greenspan founded eUniverse Inc. in 1998, which went public in 1999. The company survived the economic downturn of 2001 and was the incubator that launched MySpace in 2003, as well as gaming site Skilljam, entertainment destination Flowgo.com, and dating site CupidJunction.
Revision of controversial accounting problems resulting in three quarters of financial results forced a four-month halt in trading of eUniverse stock, which led to Greenspan’s resignation as CEO of eUniverse later in 2003.
Greenspan owned 10% of Myspace when it was sold to News Corp in 2005, and strongly opposed the acquisition. He also led an unsuccessful takeover bid for Dow Jones’ Wall Street Journal against News Corp in 2007.
