WHAT WE DO
Jemm Ventures helps startups and corporations connect and innovate together. We help the two sides with initial discovery, introduction, pilot best practices, and facilitation of work together.
HOW WE STARTED
Jemm Ventures was launched in 2017 after 10 years of successful work with startups in San Francisco and New York. We decided to launch an innovation hub after finding a balance between working exclusively with startups on business development and separately with corporations on innovation discovery.
We bring deep knowledge and expertise managing, scaling, and operating startups. Our co-founders Jenny and Michal stated working with startups in 2009 when they created JFE Network. They mentored and accelerated numerous successful companies including HomeRoots, Virool, Snappy, Getgoing, Wiser, Cater2me, Signifyd, Sense.ly, Pantry (acquired ByteFoods), SalesPredict (acquired by SalesForce), WebDAM (acquired by Shutterstock) among others.
Startup work included running 8 startup accelerator programs, building mentor programs and technical sessions, organizing large scale pitch events, and advising and mentoring U.S. and International startups across all aspects of business development and fundraising. Furthermore, the founders engaged a 100+ mentor network of sales/growth/business development experts and their experience scaling startups is a big differentiator.
Michal is a Renaissance Woman and Managing Director at Jemm Ventures. She brings over 15 years of operations, marketing, and management experience to Jemm Ventures, 10 of which was devoted to startup growth and acceleration across several prominent startup organizations, JFE Network and Jemm Ventures Accelerator, that she founded and launched.
