Jared O’Toole graduated Ithaca College with a finance degree and like so many other business majors he quickly realized corporate life was not a path for him. Instead, he got passionate about entrepreneurship, branding and how companies could leverage new media tools online. This change in heart led him to co-found Under30CEO Media, a network of sites dedicated to inspiring young people with the resources needed to succeed on their journey including Under30CEO, Under30Finance, and Under30Careers. O’Toole has led Under30CEO to features on The Wall Street Journal, Forbes, and Yahoo! Finance to name a few.
