Mitch Lowe uses his experience from working with successful startups like Netflix, Redbox, and MoviePass to teach entrepreneurs how to simplify their business and to create a winning culture.


Mitch Lowe is a top business speaker and entertainment industry speaker, CEO of MoviePass, co-founding executive of Netflix, and former President of Redbox.

Mitch Lowe invested in and became CEO of MoviePass, Inc, a subscription service that charges members a monthly fee for movie tickets at cinemas. Recently, he helped grow the MoviePass subscriber base from 20,000 to millions of subscribers.

Lowe’s first creation was the Video Droid, an early movie rental machine back in the 80s. He sold it to a Japanese company and started opening video rental stores (back when those were still profitable). After sensing the switch to online content, he and Marc Randolph came up with the idea for Netflix. The rest, as they say, is history. Mitch was a founding Executive at Netflix, Inc., serving as Netflix’s Entertainment Domain Expert and as Vice President of Business Development & Strategic Alliances from 1998 to 2003.

In 2003 Mitch joined the investment group at McDonald’s to co-lead as COO and then as President, at Redbox, a DVD vending machine rental service, that under his leadership grew to 35k kiosks across the US with revenue growing from less than $1m in 2003 to $1.5B in revenue in 2011 with over $325m in free cash flow.

Lowe states that the startup companies that succeed simplify their internal and external processes. Amazon has one-click purchasing, Southwest flies only one type of plane, and Apple integrates all of its products. Therefore, Lowe advises you examine each step in your business process (selling and internal) and get to the shortest possible route possible for customers. And the best way to do this? Simple, listen to the customer.

Mitch Lowe has made many personal investments in start-ups primarily in the entertainment, blockchain and social space. Mitch Lowe is passionate about the success and business fulfillment of people in large businesses as well as first-time entrepreneurs. In his winning culture keynote talk and business interviews, Mitch Lowe explains the two principles every entrepreneur should follow to ensure startup success: listen to customer feedback and simplify the process.


Disrupt or be disrupted.

If you want to be the leader of your industry, you need to disrupt your market. Mitch Lowe is an expert in disruption. As a chief executive officer of Netflix, Redbox, and MoviePass, Lowe has disrupted the movie industry three times: two times he disrupted how we rent movies (by mail and by kiosk) and is in the process of disrupting how we pay for our movie theater experience. In this exciting and informative talk, Lowe will share the behind-the-scenes secrets of how he built a culture that disrupted movie watching and how you can build your own culture to disrupt your own industry.

Facing Tough Leadership Decisions.

Remember when Netflix decided to increase their monthly fee by 60% or when Redbox raised their rental prices higher than $1 per night? Drawing on instances from his time at Netflix and Redbox, Mitch explains decisions made when the companies faced existential and strategic crises, providing reasoning behind those decisions and their effects—for better and/or worse.

Mitch discusses the wrong ways to make a decision and which factors are actually not helpful in the decision making process. He then details how to make a well informed decision by looking holistically at the pros and cons, the processes and resources through which a decision is implemented, and the likelihood of success.

This, along with Mitch’s other presentations, can be tailored to the audience, whether they be marketing, sales, operations, strategic based.

Creating a Winning Culture.

Theory and strategy are important, but execution is absolutely crucial. Sharing stories from his experiences at Netflix and Redbox, Mitch reveals the framework for designing and implementing a positive and winning culture.

The culture that developed in the early days of Netflix played a large role in the success of the company, and when Mitch took over as Redbox President he brought that culture with him. While, Redbox—a Chicago based company with midwest values–was a very different company than the Silicon Valley based Netflix, Mitch was able to implement the framework of the successful Netflix culture and customize it to fit Redbox’s goals and company values.

In this presentation Mitch, shows how a winning culture can be customized to align with any company’s unique philosophy to create an exceptional working environment that you and your employees will be proud of.

Building Teamwork to Achieve Innovative Results.

Innovation requires unwavering commitment and support throughout the entire organization, which is often difficult to achieve for two reasons: one, the financial commitment and, two, getting everyone onboard for disruptive work.

In this presentation, Mitch details the processes to get the whole team on board to work together towards innovative results.
