Letter of Recommendation for James Mesaros
In the course of my 30 year career, I have met very few people with the personal qualities and professional potential James Mesaros embodies. I co-founded both a successful startup company, Probaris Technologies, and an $800M social venture, The Reinvestment Fund. As an entrepreneur, I’ve encountered many successful businesspeople and many successful agents of social change. It’s rare to find someone who is capable of both. This is Jimmy. As a student entrepreneur he led a student team and motivated other students seeking to learn about entrepreneurship. Further, Jimmy did do in the final semester of his senior year. Each time I work with this young man, I find myself thinking, “If I still ran my company, I’d find a way to hire this young man, let him lead and get out of his way.”
Three years ago, I joined the University of Delaware, to both teach and support young people who wish to create value and social change through entrepreneurship.
Little Brother LLS is an innovative team. I'm impressed with their project to prevent unwanted listening in by unwanted eavesdroppers with a hardware solution. This innovative solution bypasses the standard software attempt at preventing phone and speaker intrusion and provides a hardware solution which can not be externally defeated.
