Key Accomplishments

I've already completed my first round of funding and starting a second round for my news app. I'm very much a hybrid founder -- MBA and Full Stack Lead Developer (although I'm a much better product and marketing guy than a developer!).

How I like to work with people As a Cofounder

I love to collaborate to solve tough, important problems -- and the best ones are solved by bringing talented people together to solve them! I'm very creative, and extremely multi-faceted, which allows me to contribute across a wide range of challenges. I'm an accomplished marketer, but also a full stack developer, so I'm able to guide tech product development from needs discovery all the way to final product.

As an Advisor

I like to stay in touch and get updates and hear where there are issues so I can work with them to solve problems. Problems are only bad if they're not solved.

Justin Jarman
We worked together
He has a proven track record of executing from the ideation phase to a functional product with active customers/users.

Jordan is someone I look up to as a person and a entrepreneur, His advice guided me to finally launching an MVP for my startup!!!
Vincent Rosso

Jordan's great ideas combined with his unwillingness to take "impossible" as an answer makes him a force to be reckoned with. I've known him ... for many years and conversations with him are always insightful. He has great ideas and has a knack for explaining them in a way that makes it seem obvious. His passion is always contagious. He's not just an ideas man either. He rolls up his sleeves and builds prototypes himself even if he has to learn Ruby/Rails to do it. I'm an engineer and I've worked with plenty of "business" people in a startup environment. The best are the ones who both have a good understanding (and interest!) of technical aspects. Jordan will never have any problem keeping up in any technical conversation.

I've known Jordan since 2005 and have been consistently been impressed with his: a) Insightful product vision Jordan always thinks about the ... user, and user experience and develops a deep understanding of the core value his (innovative/disruptive) product will add and laser-focus on providing that first b) Persuasive communication skills Jordan is a clear and gifted communicator, both 1:1 and in group settings. His deep knowledge, passion for his ventures and ability to build logical and compelling stories about his products c) Ability to reliably execute and deliver (despite obstacles) Jordan has always kept to his promises and is very reliable, both in personal and business matters d) Technical knowledge He has both broad and deep technical knowledge across a range of scientific (especially biological) and technical development skills. This is one of his unique characteristics as a business development oriented founder who can roll up his sleeves and dive into execution and coding when required e) Diverse work experience From strategic consulting and CMO for major corporations to leading small, scrappy startups (as well as an MBA from a top school). This wide range of experience means he can draw upon invaluable experience and tap into wide networks I couldn't recommend Jordan more highly as an exceptional cofounder to other entrepreneurs, when you meet him you'll see what I mean!

Jordan is my role model for how to be an entrepreneur. He is the most methodical User researcher I know. He is also willing to roll up his ... sleeves and do whatever it takes. Despite being non-technical at first, he taught himself Ruby on Rails in only a few weeks to build an excellent prototype and is extremely methodical about finding what is needed to improve the product. He is well-connected enough to have received funding from the dean of NYU Stern business school. Any cofounder of Jordan's is lucky to have him as a partner.
