Co-founder & CEO

​Jason Sherman is a serial entrepreneur, award winning filmmaker, journalist and tech startup expert.

His new book "Strap on your Boots" is the culmination of his life's work to help other entrepreneurs succeed and was the focus of a class he created and taught at the illustrious Wharton School of Business.
