Jon Hearty

early-stage startup addict

After spending the last 8 years selling at early-stage startups (Redbeacon, Datanyze, and Origin Protocol) I have shifted focus to building something of my own.

"Don't waste your hate. Rather gather and create."

I can sell and I can code, but can I ship?

To find out, I'm currently building GolfRise, a mobile app that allows golfers to save, share, and analyze their scorecards.

I'm also participating in the inaugural S19 class of the OnDeck Fellowship and exploring ideas in B2B SaaS.


I enjoy traveling to places that will change my perspective on life, which I've learned is pretty much anywhere you've never been.

I love to compete. Lately, this has come in the form of running (3 marathons and counting), golfing (7.7HC), and bowling (need to get back into league play!).


Send me a note! I'm always down for a video call or a meet-up in Sacramento, the Bay Area, or wherever I may be at the time.

Things I can help with: Early-stage B2B SaaS outbound sales, fundraising with SAFTs, or learning how to code as a beginner.

Things I need help with: Design, development (mostly Django & React Native), and shipping to production.

Thank you
