My name is Doug Messer, and I am the founder/CEO of University Beyond, as well as a career development speaker, startup advisor/investor, and inventor.

Some of my creations include The Jucce Box, DBFLY Watches, College Cash, and the first ever nationwide holiday for student discounts.

I started UB 5 years ago, which provides technology and marketing services to leading F100 brands allowing them to identify, activate and track college ambassadors, summer interns, and full time hires.

In addition to my role at University Beyond, I am the founder of Big Picture Ventures specializing in early-stage startups, blockchain applications, and large OTC trades.

I love to create and have experience working with 300+ employers ranging from emerging startups to F100 brands like Amazon, Google, GSK, Dell, Pepsi, AT&T, and more.

As the CEO of UB, I was awarded the Wharton Reimagine Education Award, New York's 33U33, and a Forbes 30 Under 30 in education.
