Hi, I'mJonathan Kestenbaum

Entrepreneur & Investor


Hi. I’m Jonathan.
I’m a lawyer/investor/entrepreneur/author interested in pioneering initiatives that change the way we live.

I'm a father, husband, serial entrepreneur, and dreamer from New York. I've spent my career focusing on people, process, and technology -- the ingredients I believe are fundamental to building a successful business.

I am passionate about incredible ideas. Are you trying to find the missing piece in your business idea? As a business strategist, I help companies and individuals find the link between their idea and creating a reality around that idea. I also help teach entrepreneurs, students, and business leaders how to level up their business strategies through speaking, writing, teaching and investing.
