Zach Smith

Hi, I’m Zach!

I’m the co-founder and CEO of Funded Today, the world’s largest boutique agency that provides consulting, marketing, video, and design services to crowdfunding campaigns, Fortune 500 companies, and businesses internationally. With no upfront capital, no loans from family or friends, and no outside investment from angels or venture capitalists, and just a lot of hard work, together with my business partner Thomas Alvord, we’ve raised over $240,000,000 USD and counting and built Funded Today to be the #27 fastest growing privately held U.S. company and #2 for fastest-growing privately held company in Utah for 2018 and #3 in the “Advertising and Marketing Category” nationwide. Our growth and success have been tremendous because the results we have and continue to generate for our Clients is huge. Chances are, if you’ve seen a successful campaign on Kickstarter or IndieGoGo, Zach Smith, Thomas Alvord, and Funded Today have been the driving factor behind its stellar success!

I graduated Summa Cum Laude as the valedictorian from Weber State University’s Goddard School of Business and Economics with a business degree specializing in Accounting. I also speak fluent Mandarin which I learned on a two year Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints’ service mission in Toronto, Canada. I also studied Mandarin in college following that mission. I am a serial entrepreneur, never having had a “real” job my entire life. I’m always starting, selling, running, and managing businesses. For two (2) years (2011 and 2014), my other companies received 3rd Place at the prestigious Utah Student 25 competition. I love helping others turn their dreams, ideas, and inspirations into successful companies.

To learn more about my other businesses and entrepreneurial endeavors, I invite you to visit AgileHG, my holding company.

I cohost “Get Funded Today! The Funded Today Podcast” with my business partner Thomas Alvord. I am also the author of the Amazon bestseller, Funded Today: The Ultimate Guide To Crowdfunding.

I am a curious soul. I never stop asking questions. I crave knowledge. Whenever I have spare time, you’ll find me investing in real estate, angel investing, private lending, playing competitive indoor soccer, playing basketball, weight lifting, reading business biographies and autobiographies, listening to podcasts and audiobooks, traveling the world, and working with young entrepreneurs and start-ups.

I live in the glorious and gorgeous mountain city of Ogden, Utah, USA with my beautiful wife, Courtney Bergen (a talented professional opera singer contracted with the Utah Symphony in her own right). (Check out some pictures of our adventures together below).
