Recommendations

Aharon Cagle CEO at glimmar

JB was invaluable to glimmar before, during and after the UpTech 6 cohort. He provides a seasoned and knowledgeable perspective of the startup process (and pitfalls) in a way we really haven't experienced before. JB is always looking for new strategies and new ways of educating a diverse set of startups with even more diverse knowledge and experience levels. He juggles it phenomenally. In addition, he's transparent, honest and authentic. Qualities that are paramount in what we seek from advisors and mentors. JB is the real deal.

Devin Serago COO at Pāpr

JB possesses many skills that cannot be taught as well a variety of technically sound analytical skills. His flexibility and experience allow him to mentor businesses in any stage or industry. I can personally speak to this as he is a valued mentor to my company and I have witnessed him do the same for others. In addition to running a great program, he truly cares about people and will do anything in his power to help you succeed!

Martins Bratuskins COO at TheMonetizr

JB is an amazing mentor! He is the kind of guy who helps you become a better version of yourself. He always keeps challenging you and your team to be reaching better and more ambitious results. During the program, JB helped us to grow professionally and personally! He's a great guy to work with and you always can count on him! He's the main reason we joined the UpTech program and that was definitely the right choice!

Glenn Lawyer Senior Postdoctoral Researcher at Max Planck Institute for Informatics

JB is awesome! His structured and organized approach allows his creative suggestions and analytical critiques to achieve maximum effect. More importantly, he cares deeply about the people he is supporting. He always made time for us (and the other teams), even when it was obvious that he didn't have time. He went overboard to make our UpTech experience a success, both professionally and personally.
