Jonathon Perrelli

Co-founder & CEO

An entrepreneur, early-stage technology investor, and most recently a filmmaker. After investing in, advising, and serving as a board member to a select number of startups and accelerators, I have decided to become a founder once again. Five years of serving entrepreneurs and investing in them taught me so much that I had to get back to my roots in 2015. LifeFuels is my next adventure and the company will bring our first product to market in 2015.

Proud to have been a 2014 Delegate for the United Nations Foundation and particpant in the UN’s Global Accelerator. I have been an advisor to accelerators including 1776 in DC, a mentor and judge for startup pitch competitions including Startup Weekend, Lean Startup Machine events, and Distilled Intelligence (which I co-created). Served as a mentor/speaker aboard the inaugural Millennial Trains Project, and have travelled around the country speaking on topics related to entrepreneurship, fundraising, accelerators, startup ecosystems, and building emerging technology companies. Also co-created and produced Startupland, a documentary series focused on the authentic portrayal of the founder experience.
