Hi there, glad you dropped by.
My name is Jeremy Brown.
Here’s a quick, bite-sized summary about me.
In 2014, I founded Startups Give Back with the mission of making philanthropy a top priority for startups rather than an afterthought. Some of the companies that have been involved over the years includes: Uber, LinkedIn, Salesforce, and BuzzFeed.
I’m also an angel investor in several startups, an advisor to the nonprofit Educate2Envision, entrepreneur advisor/mentor at Sky’s the Limit, podcaster, writer, and I’ve spent my entire career in the trenches of the tech industry as a marketer.
