Guy Kawasaki (born August 30, 1954) is an American venture capitalist.[1] 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.[2][3]

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.[4] 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).
