As a kid, Jeremy dreamed of being a professional baseball player and followed that dream through his college career. Graduating from college he faced reality and made the natural transition from baseball to a boring career in private equity. He caught the startup bug 20 years ago and since then has founded 6 companies and successfully exited 4 of them. His most recent was goworkspace.com which was acquired in Q4 2019. Jeremy now plays for the Watertower Team as General Partner. Jeremy has sat in every seat at the table, a founder, investor, board member and most importantly a team player. He understands the difficulty of building a successful business, digs in, stays involved and committed.
He has a BSE from the Wharton School at the University of Pennsylvania and an MBA from the Anderson School at UCLA. He lives in Santa Monica with his wife, two children and his golden retriever Chance.
Jeremy is avid tennis player, amateur – extra, extra stress on the amateur – jazz piano player, has a passion for technology, especially home automation programming. Is willing to take late night tech support calls from friends and most importantly loves his dog.
