“Do you remember the summer you spent working as a lifeguard, or the semester you were a barista during college?” This is the question the Huffington Post asked in the introduction to their recent article about the first jobs of nine successful professionals.
Jacob Singer, OBDC’s CEO, was profiled alongside other “crazy successful people” like Cyndi Lauper (recording artist), Angela Glover Blackwell (Executive Director of PolicyLink), and Curtis Granderson (New York Mets outfielder). Jacob’s profile showed his long career of working with, for, and as an entrepreneur, and why OBDC’s focus on serving the people behind the businesses is such a critical component of our work.
We’re delighted to join the Huffington Post in celebrating Jacob this week. Thank you, Jacob, for your dedication to our communities and the business owners who are creating opportunities and prosperity across the Bay Area.
