Jason Pressman

Jason leads the enterprise practice at Shasta Ventures and invests across a range of sectors including enterprise software, SaaS, cloud and consumer services. Some of his previous investments include Adometry (acquired by Google), Demdex (acquired by Adobe), Makara (acquired by RedHat) and iConclude (acquired by Opsware). Jason currently serves on the boards of mobile application performance management company Crittercism, SaaS subscription billing company Zuora, as well as local social guide Nextdoor and mobile music platform Smule.

Prior to joining Shasta in 2005, Jason was Vice President, Strategy and Operations at venture-backed, where he took the online retailer from zero to large scale revenue in five years. His experience growing that business into one of the largest retailers online informs his understanding of how to thoughtfully scale fast-growing businesses, as well as how to use software to improve operations. Previously, Jason worked as an investment banker to venture-backed companies at Alex.Brown.

Jason earned an MBA from Stanford Graduate School of Business and a BS in Finance from University of Maryland. He is an avid scuba diver and a passionate supporter of shark conservation.
