Jack has worked with growth-stage technology businesses his whole career and most recently is a partner to twelve portfolio companies at PeakSpan. Prior to joining PeakSpan, Jack worked for Stackpop, an early-stage startup where he was the team’s second business development hire and helped build out a SaaS-based cost management platform to help CTOs and IT teams buy and manage their internet infrastructure. After his startup was disrupted by AWS, Jack joined Macquarie Capital where he spent three years executing software M&A and capital markets transactions. Jack holds a B.A. in Economics from Middlebury College; and prior to Middlebury, he played division I soccer for Seton Hall University. Jack lives in Brooklyn Heights with his Fiancé and recently rescued puppy, Willow – the sweetest Great Pyrenees you’ll ever meet. Once a year, Jack champions a team of thirty in a charity bike ride to the Hamptons to support his brother’s autism program, Quest, where he’s raised over $100K. Jack still tries to hold his own out on the pitch (soccer), but has become a more avid marathon runner and is halfway to completing the “big six” world marathon majors.
Central to our philosophy at PeakSpan is the power of focus. We spend years, sometimes decades in our BluePrint Market Themes - and more importantly, strive to be expert in helping B2B SaaS businesses scale from sub-$5M in revenue to $30M+. Having the opportunity to lean in and assist entrepreneurs achieve their next “peak” of value creation is especially rewarding and motivating. It is truly a privilege to work for our entrepreneurs and their management teams each day.
