Jason Norman

I am thankful for the opportunity to connect with people who are authentically passionate about closing the financial and social capital gaps for Black people. Access, opportunity, and exposure have changed my life and I'm committed to providing those things across my work with the fund and the foundation. I am interested in the intersection of Sports and Technology, and the Future of E-commerce.
