Chicago, IL (PRWEB) October 30, 2015
Ringleader Ventures (RLV), the Chicago venture capital firm working to connect entrepreneurs and enterprises, has hired Jordan Buller as principal.
Buller, 30, will lead both investment and advisory activities for the firm, which invests in early stage startups that can solve strategic challenges faced by its Fortune 500 clientele.
Prior to his new position at Ringleader Ventures, Buller was the co-founder and chief technology officer of Perfect Audience, a leading bay-area display and social retargeting startup which was acquired in 2014 by Marin Software.
Buller believes Ringleader Ventures has a solution to the biggest problem startups face. “As a founder, the constant challenge is knowing what customers want. An open channel to an enterprise’s customers, alongside money in the game to prove conviction, is tremendously valuable.”
Buller continued, "I've been on the other side too, leading innovation within large companies. It can be challenging. Opening that process up to startups can provide fresh new ideas that may be starkly different, but exactly what's needed."
Mike Bechtel, managing partner of Ringleader Ventures added: “We’re beyond pumped that Jordan has joined our team. A successful digital entrepreneur from the heart of silicon valley, Jordan has a vivid understanding of what matters most to today’s top startups. He immediately turbocharges our value proposition to both our portfolio companies and our enterprise clients.”
Buller is returning from San Francisco, CA to Chicago, IL, with his wife and two children. Prior to his time with Perfect Audience, Buller was a technology research & development analyst with Accenture, where his work inventing and delivering emerging technology solutions to Global 500 clients resulted in multiple patents. He holds a B.A. from the University of Virginia where he majored in computer science and theology.
