  • @jamaalglenn
I'm a Director at Schmidt Futures, a social impact investment firm backed by former Google Chairman & CEO Eric Schmidt, where I lead the organization's entrepreneurship programs and for-profit venture capital investing.

I am also an adjunct professor at New York University, where I teach graduate and executive education courses on finance, marketing, and entrepreneurship.

I'm the founder of Glenn Media Group, a boutique consulting firm with clients that have included Google, Harvard University, and the City of New York.

Previously, I was an investor and executive at Alumni Ventures, a global venture capital firm, First Look Media, a media and entertainment startup, and Inneractive, a venture-backed, Israeli tech startup that was acquired in 2016. I also founded and sold Politiconomist.com and Capitolista.com, and worked at Google and J.P. Morgan.

I am a board director of LION Publishers, a member of the Council on Foreign Relations, and a New Urban Progress Fellow with Das Progressive Zentrum, Alfred Herrhausen Gesellschaft, and Progressive Policy Institute.

I received an MBA from the Stanford Graduate School of Business, an MPA from the Harvard Kennedy School of Government, and bachelors degrees in finance and journalism from the University of Missouri.
