John Knific

My name is John. I'm a jazz pianist, entrepreneur, and currently CEO of DecisionDesk, a software-as-a-service video screening provider. We license our platform to universities for digital auditions and interviews. Since launch, we've processed applications from 90 countries for over 50 universities. BusinessWeek recently voted our team among the top 25 young entrepreneurs in the US. Working for a startup, my roles are very diverse, but primarily include fundraising, product design and management, and general operations. I love to cook...my wife and I spend way too much time in the kitchen. I was raised by two musician parents and grew up a jazz lover. I still actively gig and compose when I can and have had the opportunity to work with some amazing musicians, friends and family included.
