Ruthie Schulder

Chief Executive Officer
The Participation Agency

As co-founder and Chief Executive Officer of The Participation Agency, Ruthie Schulder reinvented the agency model. Bucking the trend of conventional pay-for-play opportunities in music and art, she started The Participation Agency to develop radical experiential campaigns with brands as partners—not clients. With an international portfolio of clients, Ruthie’s work has helped drive multimillion-dollar campaigns for Fortune 100s, tech startups, and cities seeking innovation through experiential. Ruthie was named an Adweek Disruptor and Inc.’s Millennial CEO Rising Star and under her leadership, The Participation Agency has won a CLIO, an Ex Award and consecutive placements on Inc.’s Fastest Growing Private Companies list.
