Chairman of the Board
Sean Folkson is founder and Chief Executive Officer of Nightfood. He founded Nightfood after identifying a problem: people – himself included – snack at night on unhealthy foods that disrupt sleep, wreck diets and generally make us feel bad about ourselves.
Recognizing the growing body of research linking nutrition and sleep, Folkson launched Nightfood, the first night snack, to give consumers a healthier, more sleep-friendly snack for that time between dinner and bed. Sean is a serial entrepreneur and solution finder, having previously founded Specialty Equipment Direct, an online distributor of floor removal equipment, and, before that, AffiliatePros.com, an internet marketing company.
