Jonathan has been at the leading edge of identifying emerging enterprise SaaS companies and the markets that they are transforming--especially in non-traditional markets in the Midwest. As the IT practice manager at Early Stage Partners, a venture capital firm, he has led investments in TOA Technologies, OnShift, and Amplifinity, and has provided strategic advice to dozens of consumer and B2B cloud software companies.

Recently, he worked with the team at Amplifinity, provider of an advocacy management social media platform, to refocus on the enterprise market. This has led to the acquisition of some key accounts and growing revenue momentum.


Jonathan has structured and led multiple rounds of financing in enterprise SaaS companies. This has included leading the first institutional rounds of investment in TOA Technologies, now an internationally recognized leader in providing a cloud-based platform for managing field service workers.
