Strategic Partnerships Coordinator
As Strategic Partnerships Coordinator, Jesse facilitates the day-to-day operations of the Greentown Labs Strategic Partnerships team. He serves as a liaison between the Strategic Partnerships team, corporate partners, prospective partners, startups, and Greentown staff to ensure seamless execution of major communications, coordination, and programming. Jesse also conducts research and analysis on startups both inside and outside Greentown for participation in Greentown Launch programs and corporate partnership engagements.
Before joining the Greentown team, Jesse worked as a valuation and advisory analyst for Newmark Knight Frank. In his time in this position, he analyzed operational data and market demographics to inform valuation decisions. He also worked as a research intern for NRG Energy, specifically in community solar, which sparked his interest in renewable energy and cleantech.
Originally from a suburb outside of Minneapolis, Jesse attended the University of Minnesota, where he obtained a B.S. in Economics with minors in Sustainability Studies and Environmental Sciences, Policy, and Management. Throughout his undergraduate career, Jesse completed projects and research with the University of Minnesota’s Institute on the Environment. Jesse’s research revolved around economic development, tourism, and sustainability efforts as they relate to the cultural and environmental diversity throughout Yunnan, China.
In his free time, you can either find Jesse skiing throughout New England (Jay Peak and Killington are his personal favorites) or attempting to grow hot peppers in his apartment.
