Tony Stiles was born in Omaha, Nebraska to an insulation contractor and a Midwestern housewife. He grew up in a conservative home with classic progressive influences from his grandparents. Stiles started his first business at the age of seventeen and became what he describes as a “serial entrepreneur” in many interviews.
Having played a role in the successful start of over twenty businesses worldwide, this young venture capitalist retired from the business world at thirty-four and has now turned his focus to giving back through his charity work, national radio program, activism, writing and media commentary. With quick wit, intense verbal skills and commanding physical presence, Tony Stiles is the voice of a new generation challenging authority and changing society’s version of normal.
Stiles is currently living and working abroad with several organizations teaching as well as aiding efforts to end the trafficking of at-risk men, women and children while completing his first book.
