Jonathan Lacoste – Co-Founder & COO at Jebbit, Forbes 30 Under 30 and Inc. Magazine Columnist
Jonathan Lacoste has been on the show before, and is one of the youngest guests we have had. As Co-Founder of Jebbit, Jonathan has arranged venture-backing for the marketing software startup. The company offers the industry’s first post-click engagement marketing system for some of America’s best known brands, like Reebok. It was named one of the “Top 25 Most Promising Companies in the World” by CNBC and the “#1 Startup” at SXSW. They also won the “Boston’s Hottest Startup” award and Tech Cocktail’s “Most Innovative Sales & Marketing Technology of the Year Award.” Great stuff, with an interesting conversation about dropping out of college.
