Background

About Jordan

I have spent my entire career in tech, business, and digital media. I started off as a programmer (Comp Sci degree from Brown University, Software Engineer during the dot-com boom and bust, etc,). When I graduated from college I gravitated towards the business side, the dot-com bust fresh in my mind, although never fully leaving the digital world. I did technical sales for a money transfer/family remittance startup (think Western Union for Latin American immigrants); management consulting at a startup consulting firm, primarily in the payments space; some MBA internship stints in VC and mobile; helped Univision launch their first financial services product aimed at the underbanked Hispanic consumer; corporate development for an IT-services firm; was the NYC representation for Genacast, a VC fund investing in early-stage technology companies in the Northeast (investments include Invite Media, acquired by Google; Demdex, acquired by Adobe; Enterproid; DoubleVerify; and Mortar Data); and have done various advisory and business development work for startups including Fitocracy, Classtivity, and OneSpot.
