From an early age, Jonathan’s entrepreneurial spirit was evident. At the tender age of 8, he started his first business and hasn’t looked back since. Over the course of three decades, he has founded and developed over 10 businesses, ranging from custom T-Shirt operations to creative printing companies. However, it is his role as an avid angel investor that sets him apart.
