Chad Jackson, Founder/CEO of Sendicate

Name: Chad Jackson
Current Startup: Sendicate
Education: B.A. Art History & Theory from the University of Sydney
Bio: Chad comes from a marketing and advertising background and has lived in Sydney, London, Tokyo, and now New York. He started as a programmer whilst still at the University of Sydney. In the last few years he has created many marketing and social media campaigns, iPhone and web apps, and has picked up a few awards along the way.

Lessons Learned:

  • Thorough planning makes all the difference. But, no matter how prepared we are now, we still have to deal with unforeseen problems in the future.
  • Seeing through your vision takes determination and willpower.

Staying Motivated: Sometimes it feels like the launch is months away or never going to happen. When I become discouraged I think about how delighted our beta users are with Sendicate and the results that they are starting to see. At the end of the day we are trying to empower our customers with a better way to use email. Providing results and a solution for customers is a big motivator and helps me through dark times.

Greatest Mentors:

  • Richard Kirshenbaum is a modern-day Don Draper and has been successful with his own advertising agency. Professionally he has taught me about storytelling and marketing techniques, personally he has been there with relationship advice and helped me learn how to balance work and family obligations.
  • My Co-founder Thomas Mastorakos brings a totally different set of ideas and creativity to the business.
