Jay Batson Angel Investor, Mentor StartupDJ

I help remix the classic & the new to create sweet new startup companies. I've founded two venture-backed companies, and bootstrapped others.

Now, I'm helping dozens of companies navigate the cacophony of starting up. I'm a Mentor-In-Residence at TechStars Boston (helping 28 companies), and helping others via MassChallenge and other local Boston startup scenes.

I help companies think about matching business model to customer and consumer acquisition.

Oh, if you can't tell, I'm also a Deep House DJ.
