Entrepreneurship is hard and littered with failures. So why do it? Jason Collier, serial founder most recently of Scale Computing, recounts lessons learned from the dot-com crash and gives no-BS advice on the pitfalls of fundraising, learning to adapt, and what really matters in running a startup.
Register for Jason’s personal playbook on:
Jason Collier has over 20 years of experience as a serial entrepreneur in the technology industry. Jason was the Founder and Chief Evangelist at Scale Computing. Scale was one of the early pioneers along with Nutanix and Simplivity in the hyperconvergence space. Previously, Jason was VP of Operations at Corvigo where he oversaw sales engineering, technical support, internal IT and datacenter operations. Prior to Corvigo, Jason was VP of Information Technology and Infrastructure at Radiate. There he architected and oversaw the deployment of the entire Radiate ad-network infrastructure, scaling it from under one million transactions per month when he started to more than 300 million at its peak.
Jason is one of the pioneers of hyperconvergence and is an expert in virtualization, data storage, networking, cloud computing, data centers, and edge computing. In his current role as an independent consultant, Jason provides distinctive technology and intelligent strategy solutions in both enterprise and startup settings. Understanding the importance of innovative ideas and how to take those ideas to market, Jason is able to combine “go-to-market” expertise with practical application.
Jason holds a BS from Indiana State University in Computer Hardware Engineering with a minor in Computer Science.
