Jacob is a charismatic, well connected guy who knows his stuff and is a pleasure to work with.
Jacob is one of, if not the most plugged-in, well-connected investor I've had the pleasure of working with. Incredibly supportive and always willing to help, Jacob really adds a ton of value - and he's a great guy.

Jacob cares deeply about doing all he can to assist the ventures in which he invests. He digs deep into his network and his wealth of experience to make sure his investments are pointed in the right direction and efficiently using their resources. I leave every chat or email exchange with Jacob with a new idea to pursue, individual to contact, or process to improve thanks to his insights and ability to connect disparate dots.
CEO of Panjo. Started first company during junior year at @Brown University U. @Nelnet (NYSE: NNI) acquired that SaaS startup in 2005.
Jacob is a smart, passionate, dedicated investor who is constantly looking to support our company. He immediately added value to our company by making key introductions and providing insights on our go to market marketing strategy. Great guy, great investor.

Jacob has been an incredible advocate and connector for FitStar. He's truly an investor partner, which is to say he provides a high level of value to his companies. He consistently asks how he can help, and follows through. Anyone considering investment from Jacob would be lucky to have him involved.
