I’ve been truly impressed watching this young titan of industry as he scaled his fledgling Marketing firm, and then sold it to Beckerman, joining Antenna Group to become the largest cleantech-focused PR & Marketing agency in N. America. As you might have suspected, I try to get Jake to open up about how all that came about, and his story doesn’t disappoint. Like me you’ll probably enjoy learning just how close the agency came to closing, only to rise to new heights, an exercise that persists to this day.
Jake has been a starter, an influencer, a leader, and a true industry advocate for more than a decade, belying his youth and making him one of the most connected people in cleantech, let alone solar. If you’ve been longing for more founder stories, especially from the young ones in our business, then stay tuned!
