Starting out as an entrepreneur and designer, Jake has built and launched eleven startups since the age of eighteen.
His first company was a 22-person creative agency serving 80+ clients in the Boulder/Denver area. He later joined Boulder Bits, an early startup studio, as the VP of Branding. He and the Boulder Bits team founded the Global Startup Studio Network in 2018, which was acquired by the Global Accelerator Network in January, 2019.
Jake then consulted and advised dozens of emerging startup studios around the world after co-authoring The Rise of Startup Studios White Paper, a blueprint for hundreds of startup studios. This gave him incredible insights into the best-practices, vulnerabilities, and common mistakes made across the industry at large.
