I’m Jay Neely.

Through founding startups and consulting I’ve gained a broad skill set as a startup founder, a marketing consultant, a social media manager, an event organizer, and a web developer. Most recently I worked with Boston Globe Media as their Digital Community Builder (connecting them with the tech community, helping them develop a more digital culture internally, and assisting Recruiting with identifying digital talent).

I’m available for short-term marketing consulting or other digital projects. I’m also open to job opportunities in innovation ecosystems (venture capital, startup communities, private-public R&D partnerships, etc.), digital media, or experiential marketing.

Outside of work, I’m always looking for people to share knowledge and work with, cool things to try & tweet about, and to have an impact — if you have a project you’d like my advice on or need help navigating an area I have experience with, feel free to reach out.

To chat about any of the above, you can drop me a line: jay [@at@] jayneely [.dot.] com

My Background

I moved to Boston in 2007, drawn by Boston’s reputation as a major startup hub. I’ve attempted three startups during my time here, gaining experience in product management, content creation, and web development. After my second startup, I joined digital marketing agency refine+focus, where I gained more experience in marketing, running social media, advertising campaigns, and content creation for national brands and organizations.

During all of this, I’ve been an active connector in Boston’s startup community. I built and run Boston Startups Guide, serve as the lead organizer for one of Boston’s largest tech conferences, BarCamp Boston, coached at Boston Startup Weekend, moderate panels on the startup scene for Together Boston, and have connected many talented individuals to jobs or resources.
