Prior to being a co-founder at Iterate, Jon was the founding 10-year CEO of eBags which grew profitably at a 34% CAGR (from 2000 through early 2008, Jon’s departure). eBags, an innovator, wrote its own software to drop ship from ~500 warehouses (1999), accept ~1.4 million consumer reviews (1999), A/B split test website features (2000) and enter the UK / EU (2003).

He’s helped VC- and angel-backed startups, including Silicon Valley based Runa (acquired by Staples, 2013) where he was chairman of their advisory board. Because of his passion for entrepreneurship and facilitating connections with larger organizations, Jon is a board member of Governor Hickenlooper’s Colorado Innovation Network (Coin).
