Jacob felt the calling to the entrepreneurial space from a young age, adamantly deciding in the 8th grade that he would finish high school and then attend Eastern Michigan University to pursue a degree in Entrepreneurship (the only program of its kind in the area at the time).
Roughly nine years later, he graduated with honors from Eastern Michigan University in 2017 with not only a BBA in Entrepreneurship AND Accounting, but also a Master’s Degree in Accounting for good measure. He filled out his time there serving two terms as the President of EMU’s Collegiate Entrepreneurs Organization, gaining a wealth of experience working with start-ups, small businesses, and a diverse range of other entrepreneurially minded individuals.
Born and raised in the Metro Detroit area, Jacob has seen first-hand the phenomenal revitalization of the city of Detroit following the slump of the Great Recession. After several years of “serving his time” in the corporate world, Jacob has made his long-awaited return to the entrepreneurship space, ready to make an impact on the area and his community.
