Jonathan Eppers

Jonathan is an entrepreneur.

He’s the Founder and CEO of RadPad, a mobile utility that is revolutionizing the rental market.

He’s a builder. Jonathan started building tree houses when he was twelve, opened a successful lawn business at sixteen and built his first web application at seventeen.

In college, he developed an RFID hardware system for the Department of Homeland Security (before RFID was cool). For his work, he won the coveted senior design award from Purdue’s College of Technology and a grant from the Indiana Department of Homeland Security.

After graduation, Jonathan moved to Los Angeles, CA to become a product manager at MySpace where he worked directly with founder Tom Anderson.

Jonathan became Tom’s ‘go-to’ guy for innovation on MySpace’s most critical verticals, including the homepage and profile because of his ability to create highly engaging but simplified features.

He left MySpace in early 2008 to build a startup for high school athletes called FirstString.

Following FirstString, he was recruited by eHarmony where he helped lead a complete site redesign, the first in eHarmony’s 11 year history.

For fun, Jonathan built an iPhone app called The Little Black Book, which allowed millenial’s to privately keep remember their sexual encounters.

Jonathan and his products have been featured on NBC, Huffington Post, [The Los Angeles Business Journal(http://www.labusinessjournal.com/news/2013/mar/07/startup-tackles-apartment-hunting/), [LA Weekly](http://blogs.laweekly.com/informer/2013/09/rentalpriceslosangeles.php), [Curbed](http://la.curbed.com/archives/2013/09/mappingouttherisingonebedroomrentsacrosslos_angeles.php) and [Techcrunch](http://techcrunch.com/2013/05/30/radpad-funding-austin/).
