Throughout her career, Jana Trantow has proven her ability to identify unconventional opportunities and turn them into businesses and products. By the age of 25, Jana was a sales leader at a Fortune 40 company with revenue placing her in the top 5%. She transitioned to consumer Internet and mobile technology, built a mobile publishing platform for 70K community journalists at Examiner.com, and continued on to cofound two companies herself.
Her experience growing Tapestry, a consumer storytelling platform out of the betaworks studio in NYC, and Fun Org, a one-click-purchase social ticketing app, cemented her proficiency in interaction-focused consumer product development. With over a decade of real-world consumer mobile experience, Jana joined BlueRun Ventures as an investor to source, mentor, and connect with early-stage entrepreneurs.
Jana has a strong and varied speaking resume that includes events such as Social Media Week, SVForum's Women in Tech Festival, Designers + Geeks, and Princeton University's Entrepreneurship Series.
