"Stories are existential. Not just inseparable from the way we communicate and play out our lives, but actually the very basis of our existence."
Jacob is a writer, editor, and producer of physical and digital media. He founded Last Draft in early 2018 while working as an Associate for the Silicon Valley-based CEO advisory firm, CEO Quest. His first company, Last Draft Editors (2016-2019), helped more than 50 Canadian doctors obtain residency positions in top choice specialties.
Today, he continues to position Last Draft as a leader in expertise marketing, particularly in the spaces of American Healthcare, Venture Capital, and Corporate Innovation. As a member of Keiretsu Forum, he has helped spearhead the Keiretsu Diversity & Inclusion Committee, which works to inject much-needed diversity into the technology startup and venture capital worlds. Being a serial nomad, you can often find him criss-crossing the country in his Airstream trailer. Jacob believes wholeheartedly in a future of flexible, remote work and globally distributed teams.
