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 radio show) during college, my entire career has been dedicated 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 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. We’re also in development on WOWQuest – a family-targeted competition game show with Bunim-Murray Productions; WOWPlay – a preschool immersive experience; as well as Around the WOW – a global audio variety show.

I am also overseeing the live entertainment strategy for Imagine Resorts and Hotels’ newexciting and innovative Hasbro Resort, as well as executive producing a select group of mission-focused television/multiplatform projects with a variety of partners.

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, several executive positions at Nickelodeon as well as principal and founder of Lemonade Creative Consulting, a strategic consulting firm focused on building cross-media experiences.

In addition to being a business builder and creative leader, I’m a fearless globetrotter and passionate mom (to two now teenagers?!??!)
