Education Path Leads to Entrepreneurial Success for Jake Sieber
The world of entrepreneurship is a constantly evolving and competitive landscape. Consequently, succeeding in this space requires a unique combination of creativity, strategy, and perseverance, as Jake Sieber proves. Jake is the founder of Tech Butter, an innovative technology company that specializes in developing cutting-edge products and services for the market. He is a successful entrepreneur, integrated marketing specialist, and business development consultant who has made a name for himself in the tech industry.
Born and raised in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, Jake attended Penn State University from 2011–2015 where he majored in Accounting and Finance. After graduating, he decided to pursue the entrepreneurial route instead of pursuing a master’s degree to become a CPA like many of his classmates. In 2014, Jake and his friends scraped together any funds they could and decided to start an online jewelry brand.
At the time, it felt like a risky decision to graduate from a top-tier university and go straight into starting a company, but with student loan payments kicking in, the pressure was on to quickly build the company. Their hard work and determination paid off, and within its first year of operation, the jewelry company grew immensely. Their online store was generating six-figure monthly revenues, and their almost-instant traction and consistent growth attracted accomplished investors based in New York City.
In 2017, the jewelry company was partially acquired by investors, and Jake and his team relocated their headquarters from Pittsburgh to New York City. After parting ways with the jewelry company, Jake began a new venture with fellow Penn State friends and classmates who also lived and worked in New York City. They came up with the idea to design and develop an innovative, on-the-go wearable charging solution: the charging bracelet. The bracelet was designed to be both functional and fashionable, and it quickly became a hit with customers worldwide.
In 2018, Jake and his team relocated their headquarters from New York City to Los Angeles. Over the years, Jake built a valuable network primarily based in Los Angeles, and he felt it was the right time to move to the West Coast where there was more opportunity to grow and expand in every aspect. By the end of 2019 and into 2020, Jake had the opportunity to sell the company to a group of venture capitalists based in Los Angeles. Although it was a tough decision to make, he believed it was time to refocus his energy on something else. That’s when he founded Tech Butter.
Throughout his career, Jake demonstrated an ability to take risks and make bold decisions even when they may have seemed irresponsible at the time. His journey, from his days at Penn State to his current success as the founder of Tech Butter, is a testament to how education, hard work, determination, and a willingness to take risks can lead to entrepreneurial success.
Tech Butter is now a market leader in its field providing innovative solutions to a diverse range of clients. With a strong team and a clear vision, Jake continues to drive the company forward, always looking for new opportunities to expand and grow. He is not only a successful entrepreneur but also a valuable asset to the tech industry, constantly pushing the boundaries and delivering results that exceed expectations. Jake’s goal is to continue expanding his network and creating mutual value for those within his network.
