Jason Richelson
Founder & Chief Strategy Officer at ShopKeep

Jason is a serial entrepreneur and the writer of Lean Retail 101. He has spent his career starting and growing businesses in both the technology and retail space. He opened his first wine store in 2004 and quickly expanded into coffee and groceries, opening locations across New York City.  He is currently helping to build ShopKeep into a while keeping it close to it's mission - to help small business owners succeed. He's also running a new wine shop or two and has founded a new wine delivery startup Simply Wine.

In 2008 Jason had the inspiration for an entirely new point of sale system, one that was cloud-based, reliable, affordable and provided the kind of support, functionality and big data previously only available to big-box retailers.  The company has grown from a tech startup with only a few trial customers in Brooklyn, NY to become the leading provider of iPad Point of Sale in the US and Canada today, supporting around 16,000 independent retailers and restaurateurs.
