Jonathan Van

Maker. Doer. Starter

I make things, break things, and am learning the art of making a ruckus and doing work that matters.

I'm obsessed with technology commercialization and design. Tactically, that means lowering the time-lag between research and actual development

Currently working as a Sales Intern at Lean Startup Machine and also participating in the General Assembly Summer Startup Accelerator in New York City for the summer. Really living my dream.

I'm a student entrepreneur. I'm a connector. I'm obsessed with creation of wealth and value. I am relentlessly resourceful. I'm constantly curious..

I will do something that impacts 1 billion people. That means writing a book, getting one useful patent, and earning a DoD contract.

Cofounder of UT Entrepreneurship Week

I love reading AND writing

I'm a Marketing/MIS major at the McCombs School of Business at the UT Austin. My real passion lies in design. I dabble in the shallow end of engineering. I hope the right mix leads to a powerhouse for technology commercialization. I love concepts like Weyland Corp, Oscorp, Stark Industries, Global Dynamics, Umbrella Corp. Unreal, yet tons of tech - nanotech, biotech, energy, defense apps, etc. In real life it would look like Lockheed Martin and Alcatel Lucent.

I believe Peter Diamandis' Laws and his theory of Abundance. I believe anything is possible with the right people, technology, and capital. I believe and strive for singularity and an optimal way for technology and man to co-exist and co-evolve.

I'm obsessed with the entrepreneurship ecosystem.

Now that's a lot of "I's," so how can I help YOU?

I love getting emails with juicy questions!
