Chief Strategy Officer and Founder, ShopKeep
Jason Richelson is the Founder and Chief Strategy Officer of ShopKeep. A technologist who has worked in big 5 consulting and on Wall Street, Jason opened a specialty food and wine store in 2004. He grew that business, which employed more than 70 people, to three locations in Brooklyn and lower Manhattan. Jason had many problems with his PC-based point of sale system, and while on vacation in 2008, his store servers crashed and essentially crippled the business. This event inspired Jason to build a more reliable, cloud-based point of sale system for small businesses just like his.
As head of Strategy at ShopKeep, Jason stays in close contact with customers working to understand their needs and translate them into opportunities for ShopKeep to expand its product range and grow the business.
