As COO/CFO and co-founder of Flashstarts, Jennifer is responsible for selecting and coaching companies, and making follow-on investment decisions at the end of the 12-week program.
Most recently, Jennifer was Director of New Business Development for Fox Networks Group, where she was responsible for identifying and implementing new and transformative businesses. In that role, in 2012 she launched Dyle Mobile TV, a mobile broadcast network that leverages the broadcast spectrum to deliver a truly scalable mobile video network. PC Magazine described Dyle as a “promising” technology with “great potential”, and CNN included Dyle as one of its 5 gadgets to watch at CES. In addition to establishing partnerships with major content owners (NBC, FOX, ABC, CBS) to secure video content, Jennifer worked with software and hardware partners to develop the product and deploy enabled devices.
Before joining Fox, Jennifer worked at YouTube/Google developing their new monetization strategy and launching the Promoted Video ad product (i.e., AdWords for YouTube), which has since grown to represent a majority of YouTube’s estimated $3.5 billion in ad revenue. Prior to YouTube, Jennifer was a consultant and Team Leader at Michael Porter’s Monitor Group, where she helped build their new media and technology practice and advised companies on how to leverage technology as a strategic advantage.
Jennifer holds a BA from Harvard University and an MBA from the Stanford Graduate School of Business.
