Sam Marks

Building a $100m business the nomadic way

Sam has been passionately tied into the start-up scene and the nomadic lifestyle over the last decade. In 2009 he founded SKYCIG in the UK. While maintaining a nomadic lifestyle, he was able to scale the business, which became Europe’s largest e-cigarette company and was acquired for $100m in 2013. Prior to SKYCIG, Sam was on a founding level of 3 other start-ups with successful exits, including his first while in college in 2006. He currently is based in Chiang Mai, Thailand and continues to work full time in the start-up scene both as an operator and investor.

Sam will share about building SKYCIG into Europe’s biggest e-cigarette brand and his eventual exit, while maintaining a nomadic lifestyle. Key lessons and strategic insight on scaling and principles that can be applied to your business.
