Jacques has broad experience - having worked in very large companies as well as in startups as small as three guys in a garage (literally). He has also worked through IPOs and M&As of both small and large firms. A geek at heart, Jacques has worked in the depths of the semiconductor industry all the way to consumer-oriented software and cleantech. He has held executive management positions, technical positions and sales and marketing roles over the course of his career and has been directly responsible for large bottom-line-generating revenue. The common theme he holds constant in his mind is how to execute the vision of the entrepreneur and leverage both his personal and USVP's professional network contacts to accelerate growth and build significant and sustainable businesses.
He holds a B.Sc. in computer engineering from Technion Israel Institute of Technology, and an M.Sc. and Ph.D. in computer engineering from Carnegie Mellon University, and has published more than 30 technical papers and holds one U.S. patent.
