What I admire about Jay is his willingness to share his wealth of knowledge and resources to help other entrepreneurs grow. I met Jay late l ... ast year at a pitch event for startups. He spoke about how to best reach out to investors and marketing tactics for startups. After the event, he instantly wanted to connect me to someone who would be able to help me grow my client list. Since then, he has advised me on other ways to reach out to investors. Not once has he asked for anything in return. He is an exemplary entrepreneur with the passion to help others.
