One of the pioneers of Internet commerce, Jed has spent his career developing, advising and investing in early stage technology ventures. He is currently Javelin’s board member for BoostCTR, Engrade, Famo.us, Imagevision, Netpulse, SmartAsset, SmartZip, Thumbtack, and WellnessFX. Prior to joining Javelin Venture Partners, Jed was a Managing Director of DFJ Gotham Ventures in New York. Prior to DFJ Gotham, Jed was the COO of Yamcon, the developer of the highly acclaimed “SkyScout”, one of the best selling astronomy products of all time. Prior to Yamcon, Jed was the COO and Founder of Rent Net, the Internet’s first rental and relocation guide. Rent Net achieved 95% market penetration, launching disruptive technology solutions that revolutionized the way real estate related advertising was done. It was acquired by Cendant, and three years later, Jed used its infrastructure as the starting point for the formation of Move.com, one of the Internet’s largest real estate sites. Move.com was acquired by Homestore for over $900 million. Jed holds a B.A. in Business Economics from UCLA and an M.B.A. from The Haas School of Business at the UC-Berkeley, where he was awarded the Price Fellowship from the Lester Center for Entrepreneurship and Innovation, of which he is currently on the advisory board.
