Jeff understands the dynamics involved with being an entrepreneur. Jeff started his own entrepreneurial journey when, from 2004 – 2011, he was the Founder and CEO of The Branches Club, a private residence club of single-family vacation rentals with 12 resort locations throughout the US, Mexico, and the Caribbean with a total portfolio value of $6.5 million.

Jeff has prior experience in Venture Capital and Angel Investing, serving as the Managing General Partner of VENCÖSBA for over five years.
Jeff serves as the Co-Founder and Chairman of The Fund School, an emerging managers selection program providing an online training program for those thinking about a career in Venture Capital or Fund Management.

Additionally, Jeff is the Managing Partner of The Lights on Lab, a Startup Studio focused on launching, funding, and staffing new startup/entrepreneurship ecosystems, startup programs, and investment firms, including Real Estate and Venture Capital.

Jeff always tries to innovate new startup programs, fund models, and ecosystems as he sees the void in these spaces and knows that the current models are outdated, inefficient, and ineffective. Helping others attempt their goals and dreams of entrepreneurship is his mission!
