Think Jeff is awesome?
Vouch for them.

Peter Alberti
We worked together
Jeff is one of the few startup guys I've met who is both extremely smart and extremely articulate. He is passionate about business and is g ... enerous when offering advice and perspectives. I wouldn't say this is why Jeff "would be" a great entrepreneur; I'd say this is why Jeff "IS" a great entrepreneur.
They're my friends
Jeff is an amazing entrepreneur, he has been for the past 15-20 years of his life. I've know Jeff for around 4 years and every time I get re ... ady to pursue a new idea and start a new company (I have 7 right now), I turn to Jeff for feedback. He is also an advisor on my current media/tech project because I value his opinions. Jeff has technical skills and operational skills which makes him a great entrepreneur. He's a very thorough, analytical thinker but still very business savvy and extremely capable of making ideas become realities. He's an action taker and a risk taker - the two things I truly respect in any entrepreneur.
We worked together
Extremely smart, driven, and already has a track record of success.
They're my school
Jeff already is a great entrepreneur. He's started several successful companies and I've always admired his ability to create something out ... of nothing
Scott Barnett
They're my advisor: CareerNumbers  •  CEO, CareerNumbers. Previously Consultant, Deloitte Consulting. Vanderbilt grad.
Jeff is immensely smart and talented. He's the guy to go to when you get stuck -- because he's been there before and because he has an unca ... nny ability to bring a new and useful perspective to the table. He understands what makes startups work (and not work) which enables him to provide create solutions to address the problem at hand. It doesn't hurt that he's built Inc. 500 scale companies before so he's been in your shoes and can advise with the real-world realities that many startups face. I highly recommend him.
Ayman Sharaiha
They're my advisor: other  •  Co-founder, Clinical Fellows Inc.. Previously External Consultant, Hikma Pharmaceuticals. Wharton grad. Tufts grad.
He has tremendous experience in starting and scaling businesses. He has great analytical skills and great insights on a founder's journey.
Peter Alberti
We worked together  •  CEO, Pet Cause Media (f/k/a Pet Chance TV) and Editorial Advisory Board Member, Third Sector Today.
I don't put Jeff into the "would be" a great entrepreneur category. I put him in the "IS" a great entrepreneur list. In addition to being ... action-oriented, he has the precise balance of technical, business and interpersonal acumen that makes great things happen.
Elliot Hicks
We worked together  •  COO, Oberon Fuels. Previously CTO, US Local News Network. Massachusetts Institute of Technology grad.
Jeff has the rare ability to be a thought leader from high level business strategy down to line-level coding. He puts tremendous enthusiasm ... and energy into whatever he is doing, and inspires those working with him to do the same. Jeff adapts quickly to changing realities and can work with very little to accomplish large feats.
David Duehren
President, Beetlebung Advisors LLC (previously DWD Consultants). Previously CEO, SoundFest Inc. Massachusetts Institute of Technology grad.

Scott Barnett
We worked together  •  CEO, CareerNumbers. Previously Consultant, Deloitte Consulting. Vanderbilt grad.
Scott is a great entrepreneur because he's able to combine great analytical thinking around lots of details with a constant ability to integ ... rate into the larger context. With CareerNumbers, he took an idea and turned it into a funded company - crossing critical early milestones in the process (proving the concept, acquiring an audience, optimizing conversion, etc)

Durjoy (Ace) Bhattacharjya
Mentor, Blueprint Health LLC and Founder and CEO, Boston grad.
Ace is a passionate serial entrepreneur who has built multiple great startups and has great connections within the startup and venture scene ... .

Mike Langford
They're my friends  •  Founder & CEO, finservMarketing and Founder & Executive Producer, Big Beak Media.
Mike is a passionate entrepreneur and great communicator - he has constantly been an early adopter of new technologies (especially social me ... dia); and beyond adopting as a user, he has developed pioneering technologies in the space to enhance the user experience. As someone who is constantly plugged into the vibe, Mike will no doubt continue to have strong early insights into great ways to enhance the medium.

Scott Bailey
Co-Founder, UVM Alumni Association - Entrepreneurs Group and Senior Director of Partnerships, MassChallenge.
Scott is a phenomenal networker who always carries a positive attitude, and is constantly looking for ways to help people in his network. Mo ... st importantly, as an entrepreneur - he is a serious producer, having been a huge part of helping grow Mass Challenge to the power house it is today.

Peter Alberti
We worked together  •  CEO, Pet Cause Media (f/k/a Pet Chance TV) and Editorial Advisory Board Member, Third Sector Today.
I've known a lot of people who "talk" entrepreneur, but Peter is a clear doer. His perseverance has been successful both in helping him laun ... ch for-profit ventures, and also his latest venture "Pet Chance" in the non-profit space. As much as I like to see entrepreneurs starting ventures to make money, I like it even more to see someone like Pete putting so much passion into a cause near and dear to his (and my) heart; helping pets in need.
