Milana Rabkin

Milana (Rabkin) Lewis is the co-founder and CEO of Stem, a financial platform that simplifies payments for musicians and content creators. She started Stem with co-founders Tim Luckow and Jovin Cronin-Wilesmith to give artists the tools needed to make their creative dreams a sustainable reality.

Prior to founding Stem, Milana spent five years as a Digital Media Agent at the premier global talent and literary agency, United Talent Agency (UTA). She helped build UTA’s digital offerings by advising the agency's individual and corporate clients on emerging distribution platforms, digitally-driven fundraising and monetization opportunities. Milana represented a roster of digital creators, ranging from top YouTube and Vine stars to prominent bloggers and social media personalities, and helped grow their social channels into sustainable and profitable careers. In addition to this work, Milana sourced investment opportunities for UTA’s then newly-formed venture capital division.

From her days at UTA to the helm of Stem, Milana continues to be a champion for the creative class by pioneering new ways to bring ideas to life and her drive of novelty.  

She has been recognized as Hollywood’s “New Leaders” by Variety as well as “30 under 30” by Inc., Forbes and Refinery 29. Milana attended UCLA earning a B.A. from the Women’s Studies College, designing a major in Critical New Media Literacy.
