THE CENTER OF GRAVITY FOR ENTREPRENEURS IN TEXAS
Jay worked in consulting for five years before heading to business school where, on his first day, he met the two classmates that together would co-found the world’s leading online shipping marketplace, uShip.
After ten years growing uShip globally and through four rounds of funding, Jay left in 2014 to co-found several early-stage consumer-focused companies in Austin including Everfest, Roverpass, and Hitch. Jay is also a co-founder and board member of the Startup Games and serves on the ATX Seed Ventures’ LP Advisory Council.
As an entrepreneur, Jay loves the early to mid-stage challenges in building teams and scaling business models, especially consumer and marketplace focused, and often in “un-sexy” niches. Jay’s experience lies in product strategy, finance, operations, and analytics.
Jay earned a B.A., in Chemistry & Philosophy from UNC-Chapel Hill, a Masters in Accounting from UNC-Chapel Hill, and an MBA from the McCombs School of Business, UT-Austin.
