Oct 5th, 2017
Jon Shower a multi industry entrepreneur here in Orange County with his most recent venture being in the tech space. Currently, Jon is the founder and CEO of iNK, a new business networking platform geared towards helping people build better networks. They were funded earlier this year and are finishing testing an alpha version while preparing to launch live within the next month.
Following your passion and not being afraid to take risks are two big factors that have led Jon to this point in his journey. A lot of his core values and mindset came from the men in his family as well as his time serving in the United States Marine Corps through the mid 2000's. Jon did two combat tours to Iraq over his 4 years and then decided it was time to move on. Moving to Orange County in 2010, Jon dove into the fitness industry. He started a training company geared towards professional athletes and executive clientele. He created programs for dealing with post surgery rehab, injury prevention and strength and conditioning. After proving successful over the last 7 years, the itch to follow another idea and passion took over. The tech space was uncharted territory in 2016 for Jon but he had an idea and the passion to see it through. "I knew that building the right team around my million weaknesses would be paramount in a completely new territory....and that's what we have done".
