Show Notes

A serial entrepreneur, Mike Jacobs excels at inventing new technologies for the restaurant sector. Through founding Tap.in2, Ordermark, Nextbite, and Team Kitchens he honed his expertise in combining high-tech with experiential marketing for food, sports, and entertainment brands to create new business modalities. He brings to KDS a commitment to innovation and fostering a positive company culture, accompanied by skills in product development and marketing. Mike enjoys getting in the trenches, particularly digging into KDS’ underlying data science. Indeed, his background with the FBI gives him a unique vantage point on data-driven tech: as a counterintelligence analyst, he was responsible for a task force that worked with the U.S. DoD & Intelligence Community. For this service, he was nominated for the Director of National Intelligence’s National Counterintelligence Award. Mike is a graduate of U.C. Berkeley.
