Jacob Robinson

In 2014, Jacob moved to NOLA to launch his career in tech sales. He spent four years learning to sell at two NOLA-based startups. In 2018, he moved back to his hometown, Columbus, Ohio. He wanted to find a way to apply his sales skills to a cause and joined Venture For America (VFA) as a recruiter. VFA is a non-profit that helps recent graduates launch their careers in tech and startup businesses. In 2020, Jacob, who is also a VFA alumnus, recruited VFA’s largest and most diverse class ever. He is excited to return to New Orleans to launch Skillz Academy and teach New Orleanians how sales can be a life changing career. He is a mentor with Son of a Saint and a graduate of Duke University.
