Guy Kawasaki (born August 30, 1954) is an American venture capitalist. In 1984, while working for Apple Inc., he helped market the original Apple Macintosh computer by recruiting people to write software for it. This was an early use of evangelism marketing.
In 1987, Guy formed a Macintosh software company called ACIUS to publish the Fourth Dimension database product.
In March 2015, Kawasaki joined the Wikimedia Foundation Board of Trustees, the company responsible for Wikipedia. His responsibilities at the Foundation have grown as that board worked through a leadership crisis surrounding the ultimate resignation of the Foundation's executive director.
Kawasaki has also written a number of books including The Art of Social Media (2014) and Database 101 (1991).
