Ever since Fabian joined Hypd as an early-stage investor, during almost every interview and content piece about us we have been confronted with the same question:
“What made you decide to work with ‘The King of Porn’?”
For starters, Fabian is without a doubt one of the most intelligent individuals we ever had the chance of talking with. Within fractions of seconds he is able to understand business models, pin point strengths and weaknesses and provide solutions. He has a deep understanding of technology and business.
It is actually quite confusing that he is frequently portrayed as “a happy-go-lucky-fellow that became the pimp of the internet providing the world with whatever floats their boat 24/7” while he actually revolutionized the way internet traffic was monetized and built or purchased websites improving them to maximum profitability which o so happened to contain adult content. I am pretty sure if there had been enough traffic and demand for it, these pages could have also been about cat food or porcelain figurines. However it seemed more likely that adult content would win this race with over 16 billion visits per month.
Besides the experience of having built and run some of the internet’s most frequented websites, Fabian brings along qualities that make him the ideal business partner.
Fabian is extremely data driven. He says that it was the incredible amount of traffic, information and the resulting success that captivated him and subsequently led him to revolutionize the online adult entertainment industry. His clear understanding of how to make money and laser business focus is an extremely powerful toolset he brings to the table.
He knows about the power of recommendations. In a quest of getting more and more traffic to his websites he built and heavily invested in affiliate and recommendation marketing. He knows the ins and outs of any type of referral business. Which is also quite helpful since Hypd does exactly that: Using the power of word of mouth to increase reach and sales for brands through their fans.
He is a disruptor. I would say, one of Fabian’s greatest qualities is that he is a true visionary. He dares to be different and challenges and grinds every mediocre pebble until it turns into a grade A diamond. He clearly has every step of the way mapped out and quickly adapts to any unforeseen change. I have never met anyone that embodies the entrepreneurial spirit as profoundly as he does.
Ticking all the boxes as a fantastic businessman and investor also on a personal level it is a delight to be working with Fabian as he his a well travelled, multi interested man and dedicated father.
