I started this blog when I was 27, from the depths of my first startup (which failed). I used it as a medium to organize my own thoughts and experience. It became a platform to amplify my voice, recruit, share market insights, share experiences, find community, find support, etc….That was 3 years ago. Since then I built Hyperpublic, teamed up w Kenny and Ben as a partner in Lerer Ventures, sold Hyperpublic to Groupon (GRPN), invested in almost 170 companies, and as of late, I am working on a new startup called Wildcard. We’re going to replace the internet on your phone.

Impact is key. A century ago Teddy R. had a few words to say on the same topic:
It is not the critic who counts; not the man who points out how the strong man stumbles, or where the doer of deeds could have done them better. The credit belongs to the man who is actually in the arena, whose face in marred by dust and sweat and blood; who strives valiantly; who errs, who comes short again and again, because there is no effort without error and shortcoming; but who does actually strive to do the deeds; who knows great enthusiasms, the great devotions; who spends himself in a worthy cause; who at the best knows in the end the triumph of high achievement, and who at the worst, if he fails, at least fails while daring greatly, so that his place shall never be with those cold and timid souls who neither know victory nor defeat.

Inspiring words. Thanks Abel

Where's The Comment Form?


    I’m a NYC based entrepreneur. I think there is one metric that can be used to measure the value of a human life and that’s impact. How did you change things? How many people did you touch? How different is the world because you lived in it and how positive was the change that you affected? (p.s. i don’t use spell check…deal with it) You can email me at Jordan.Cooper@gmail.com
