Think Shawn is awesome?
Vouch for them.

Mamie Kanfer Stewart
They're my friends  •  Founder & CEO, Meeteor
Shawn has been involved with and advised dozens of non-profits and participated in serious research projects to move entire fields of thinki ... ng. He is easy to talk to, "get its" quickly, and asks great questions.
Joshua Avedon
They're my current cofounder  •  Co-founder and COO, Jewish Jumpstart. Previously Member, Board of Directors, IKAR. University of California, Berkeley grad.
Shawn sees connections between people, ideas, and possibilities that aren't obvious. He's an expert at bringing all three together to do gre ... at things.
Elizabeth Stewart
We worked together  •  Co-founder and CEO, The Hub LA. Previously Strategy Consultant/National Program Director, The DC Project.
He is great at relationships with people and can juggle multiple perspectives at once. He is empathetic, a leader, and a risk-taker.
Shivani Siroya
We worked together  •  CEO and Founder, InVenture Mobile. Previously Financial Consultant - Corporate Strategy and M&A, Health Net.
Shawn is a great entrepreneur because he's mission driven, willing to collaborate, hard-working and optimistic.
Abbie Schiller
They're my school  •  Founder & CEO, The Mother Company. Previously Vice President, ABC Media Relations, Burbank.
Shawn is one of the smartest people I know. He's also incredibly connected. Combined with his driven "no-quit" tenacious work ethic, I think ... Shawn makes a wonderful entrepreneur who is able to take a company from conception to profitability and sale.

Mamie Kanfer Stewart
They're my friends  •  Founder & CEO, Meeteor
Mamie bring's an artist's sensibility - and sensitivity - to her work. She is creative, insightful, and a generous thinker.

Joshua Avedon
They're my current cofounder  •  Co-founder and COO, Jewish Jumpstart. Previously Member, Board of Directors, IKAR. University of California, Berkeley grad.
Simply put, Joshua builds systems that work for people who need them. With a designer's eye, a programmer's hands, and a coach's heart, he m ... odels productive, human-centered, and ethical partnership. And did I mention he built a revenue-positive division from scratch, during a recession?
