More information about Ian Jeffrey

Ian is GM of FounderFuel and Venture Partner at Real Ventures. Originally from Montreal, he spent many years in Silicon Valley, and it was there in 2006 that he launched Radar (the first mobile photo sharing social network) when he was VP of Marketing and Communications at Tiny Pictures. Among many other awards, Radar was recognized as “Best Mobile Social Networking Service” by the Webby Awards. After the acquisition of Tiny Pictures by Shutterfly, Ian joined the team as Director of Marketing of its mobile and social team. There he launched Wink, a mobile service that lets users create photobooth-style prints directly from their iPhone using photos from Shutterly, Flickr and Facebook. Ian started his career in 2002 as half of the two-man team behind Nomad, the now defunct Street Intelligence Agency of Cossette Communications. Specialized in word-of-mouth marketing and insight generation, Nomad clients included the likes of Nike, Coca-Cola and McDonald’s.
