Person Details

Update

I am a Founder and CEO of Nventify Inc. - a company that develops cloud based software solutions, rapidly becoming part of the cloud infrastructure stack. Our most recent release is an image processing engine in a form of an EC2 VM on AWS we call Imagizer Media Engine. By using Imagizer in your cloud stack you will be able to optimize, scale, resize and manipulate your visual media at unprecedented scale and speed. (http://nventify.com)

Previously ('05-'14) I was a CEO and coFounder of ImageShack.com and yfrog.com; Originally top 20th website in U.S. with 60 million monthly uniques, and 35 million subscribers. ImageShack had 5 billion images under management and was a key image delivery and hosting player for MySpace and Twitter (via yfrog.com).

I've met Larry and Sergey of Google in 1999, soon after becoming one of the early Infrastructure Engineers, overseeing early partnerships with Netscape, Yahoo, AOL, ASK and many others.

I am an early seed investor, and do about 5 to 10 investments per year. You can find the current list of the startups I invested in on Angel List (https://angel.co/jacklevin74). My investment interests include Mobile Consumer Internet, SAAS and Cloud technology startups. I am well connected with some well known VC firms such as Sequoia, Bessemer, NVP, Greylock, NEA, Index Ventures, Kleiner Perkins and LDV Capital. I am also very well connected with the startup accelerator communities like 500, YC, Upwest Labs and Angel List.
