About Jason

Great ideas need amazing execution. Your company can’t change the world if you don’t have the plan to succeed and the revenue you need to grow.

Are you building an early stage side project and need a partner who can quickly help you get to the next step and turn it into a reality? Are you an established company that has been selling for awhile, but not found the velocity you expected?

Wherever you are in the process - pre-revenue, initial launch, looking to hit $100mm ARR - I can help you build for the next phase. From market fit to demos to pricing strategies, from closing your first enterprise deal to building out an entire team, I'll turn your efforts into dollars.

How I can Help: Go to market strategy, Sales Operations, Startups, Business Operations, Sales Strategy, Revenue Growth, Sales Performance, Demo Excellence, Practice Management

Technologies: SaaS, Sales AI, Marketing Automation, CRM, ERP, Business Intelligence, Data Visualization, Analytics, Mortgage Intelligence, Cloud Computing, Big Data

Industries: Technical, Medical, Dental, Finance, Mortgage Banking

One of my favorite things to do is grow companies. I'm available anytime to discuss:

1) meeting technical co-founders who can assist with web based application development - JavaScript, web based APIs, data visualization applications. I can discuss the specifics in more detail if you are interested.

2) meeting technical co-founders who need go to market help to start selling their own software and develop a predictable pipeline and revenue stream.
