A husband, farmer, entrepreneur, and spiritual explorer are some of the avenues in which Andrew Blake, 31, cultivates his perspective.

Jared Pope is the CEO and founder of Work Shield. While practicing law focused on human resources, ERISA, benefits, and employment matters, Jared realized industry-standard practices and the "system" for managing workplace harassment and discrimination were broken. Despite using outside reporting platforms, internal incident investigations meant employees were not reporting incidents due to fear of retaliation, and employers were not protecting their culture or themselves from the risk of legal action. Always ready for a challenge, Jared decided to make the system better, where voices are truly heard and incidents have a clear path to resolution. Jared created Work Shield - the first and only start-to-finish workplace harassment and discrimination solution and technology platform that gives employees a real voice, protects and ensures a safe workplace culture, and removes employer liability - all at the same time

James Jacobson has founded several companies and is a serial entrepreneur whose career has primarily been focused in the media arena since graduating from the University of Virginia in 1988. Currently James is building Dog Podcast Network. In the past several years, James has been putting his attention on a promising cancer therapeutic company he co-founded with Dr. Demian Dressler in 2008 called Functional Nutriments. James Jacobson has been described as both “a serial entrepreneur” and as a “monk in the marketplace.” He has authored best-selling books, been a broadcaster and built businesses that leveraged new trends that were sometimes considered “just a little ahead of their time.” The overarching theme of his career has been building ventures that make a meaningful difference in the lives of as many people as possible. For over 20 years, that took the form of creating projects and companies that leveraged the power of media including teleproduction, radio, publishing and, the Internet. Since 2008, James Jacobson’s focus has been on Functional Nutriments, a biotech company that has developed and brought to market first-in-class nutraceuticals that induce and support apoptosis. Apoptosis is a critical biological life process that is encoded in the DNA; and the absence of normal levels of apoptosis is linked to serious diseases including cancer. Businesses that he developed, founded or helped co-found include a video yearbook company, a teleproduction and video marketing company, a talk radio station, a cable TV network, an e-commerce company, a magazine publisher, a book publisher, and a biotech nutraceutical firm. His author credits include "How to Meditate with Your Dog" and the best-selling series "Top Maui Restaurants" which he co-authored with his wife, Molly Jacobson.
