Jason Freedman Selected as a Top Startup Mentor of 2012

Posted by Jonathan Greechan on 2013-07-13

Founder Institute Mentors provide the support, feedback, and guidance that helped our early-stage founders launch over 800 businesses since the Institute was founded in 2009. When a founder is in need they come to the rescue... sort of like Startup Superheroes

While all of our 2500+ Mentors help our companies, among these great individuals, there are some that stand out. Earlier this year, we announced the nominees for the 2012 Mentor Awards, which will take place at the 14th Founder Showcase event, on Wednesday, July 17th in Silicon Valley.

Today, we are excited to announce the winner of the "Highest Rated Individual Session" Award:

 

         

 

Jason Freedman is the founder of 42Floors, helping tenants discover and create their dream office. Before 42Floors, Jason founded FlightCaster (acquired in 2010). Jason majored in 'Building Something People Want' at that great institution of higher learning: Y Combinator. Of course, he still stubbornly insists he learned everything at summer camp.

Congratulations Jason!

The 2012 Startup Mentor Awards will be handed out at the Founder Showcase event, on Wednesday, July 17th, 2013. In addition to the award ceremony, the event will feature a series of early-stage startup workshops, led by Phil Libin (CEO of Evernote), Nir Eyal (Acclaimed Author and Speaker), and Joe Abraham (CEO & Founder, BOSI Global), as well as a pitch competition between six promising companies. We hope you will join us!
