Headquartered in San Francisco, California, and founded in 2020, The Startup Stack was created to help early-stage companies build a successful foundation by making the best operational tech offers available in one place. The Startup Stack scours the SaaS ecosystem to uncover the best tools to help founders scale and succeed. Each member of The Startup Stack is carefully vetted for both the quality of their product and the startup offering they provide.

The Startup Stack currently offers early-stage founders over $170,000 worth of perks on operational tech tools to help their businesses grow.

Headquartered in Louisville, Kentucky, and founded in 2018, Forecastr provides a software platform to help early-stage startups easily create, track and manage their financial projections in preparation for raising capital. Using Forecastr, founders are able to confidently forecast their cash flow, helping determine how much capital they should raise and when. Forecastr makes it easy to conduct, manage and modify financial forecasts all with the click of a button and gives founders confidence when talking with investors without having to incur the deep financial cost of a CFO.

Jeff currently serves on the advisory boards of several startup companies and is an active angel investor. Jeff is an experienced entrepreneur and was the founder and CEO of a successful consumer goods company that was ranked #138 on the Inc. 500 list of fastest-growing companies. He is passionate about startups and enjoys working with founders and mentoring entrepreneurs.
