Want Success? Leave Yale.

3081_566201365764_310481_33756017_5647950_nIf you’re Victor Wong, that is. The Yale dropout is the CEO of PaperG, a company that will basically secretly take over the world of advertising. The company has already released two hit products: flyerboard (a virtual corkboard for online ads that is being used by the Boston Globe) and PlaceLocal (a program that creates ads from content that already exists on the web). Victor’s clients already include a college TV station (MTV College Media Network), a few publications (New York Post, San Francisco Chronicle, New Haven Independent, Time Out New York) and a media company (Hearst). So basically NBD, right?  I mean, the Bullblog has been picked up by Gawker. The New York Times wrote an article about PaperG called “An Ad Engine to Put ‘Mad Men’ Out of Business.” The Nieman Foundation called Wong a “genius”. Oh, did we mention he’s a Yale Entrepreneurial Institute fellow?

Wong’s moving to San Fransisco to get the business going this summer and according to the Yale Alumni Magazine this means he’ll be dropping out. Well, he still is victorious!  Literally: check out his blog
