Amplifier Ventures is Jonathan’s platform for pursuing various businesses focused on technology innovation. Established by Jonathan in 2004 after a successful career as an investment banker and law firm partner, Amplifier Ventures undertakes activities at the intersection of technology, innovation, entrepreneurship and capital. During this time, Amplifier Ventures has:

  • Helped entrepreneurs establish 16 technology companies in a broad range of technology areas, including mobile applications, cyber security, material sciences, internet hosted software, healthcare information technology and social media. Many of these businesses involved the utilization of technology developed with the help of federal R&D dollars.
  • Provided innovation consulting on matters of entrepreneurial engagement, company creation, technology commercialization and other areas of importance to public and private businesses, not for profits and universities for clients such as the Department of Defense, George Mason University and Volunteers of America.
  • Created communities of connection between entrepreneurs and other groups of interest for state, local and federal agencies, resulting in the establishment of activities including the DC region’s iCorps program, FounderCorps, TandemNSI, StartupVirginia/DC/MD and other prominent efforts to build regional and national connections among entrepreneurs and the resources that they need to succeed.
