I look for businesses that other people misunderstand, or might consider insane. and entrepreneurs that are intense, passionate and believe they have something to prove. Specifically, founders that have equal measure of smarts, creativity, optimism and grit. http://bit.ly/2w9PuON
Jared is a highly committed and brilliant investor. When I want to think big picture, I look to him for inspiration. When I want to get sh*t done, he helps prioritize on the strategic elements that make the most sense product wise.
Jared was everything we could have hoped for in an advisor and investor of our early-stage startup. He was engaged, helpful, and innovative without being controlling. During challenging decision points, his advice was always in the interests of the co-founders, even when it would have been easy to counsel otherwise for the sake of his financial interest. His dynamism, empathy, and trustworthiness made him an extremely valuable advisor and friend to us and to our company. He goes above and beyond.

Great guy, excellent feedback
Founder of a company Jared Kopf took an intro to
Since our first meeting, Jared has always been challenging our team to think differently and grow uncomfortably. If you are lucky enough to have interactions with Jared, it will be like going through a very personalized tech accelerator without forking over a chunk of equity to get started. To me, Jared is a mentor, investor, and a trusted friend (very rare you find a trust friend in an investor) as Jared gives you advices and perspectives that are best for you and your team.
