Jason has been an investor for b8ta and a mentor for me personally. He's always thinking about what's best for our company, but perfectly strikes the balance of looking out for the team and founders as well. He knows everyone and can you get anywhere. He sees the future 6 months before everyone else. He's been a crucial part of b8ta's story.
