Donna Friedman Meir

CEO & Founder

WOW Explorations

I discovered my passion for kids and family entertainment while still almost a kid myself. Inspired by working at Disney and Kids America (a national kids’ radio show) during college, I focused my undergraduate thesis on how to build meaningful and impactful content for kids. Since then, my entire career has been dedicated to this – to building brands and businesses across all media that truly excite, entertain and inspire kids and families.  

Currently, I’m the CEO/Founder of WOW Explorations, a company dedicated to designing and developing innovative entertainment experiences that create memorable “WOW moments” for kids and families.  Our first venture, WOWtopia, is a live experience designed to inspire kids and families with the wonder of the world through physical play, hands-on creation, and active multi-sensory activities.  I am also currently executive producing a few exciting TV projects and consulting on other disruptive cross-platform ventures.

Previously, I have worked as a brand builder, producer, programmer and marketer of kids’ media content for the world's most respected global brands, including as President of National Geographic Kids Entertainment, Executive Vice President, Kids’ WB! for Warner Brothers and several executive positions at Nickelodeon.   

In addition to being a business builder and creative leader, I’m a fearless globetrotter and passionate mom (or was, before COVID hit!)
