Jonathan Hedvat - CEO / Founder
Always an energetic go-getter, he took on more than 5 internships while at Rutgers University, and was interning at the south tower of the World Trade Center on the morning of 9/11. Luckily, he managed to escape the building in time; however, the experience haunted him for months.
He remembered the compassion of local business owners (who handed out water bottles to ash-covered survivors like himself) and began to think about ways he could help people.
At the end of college, Jonathan had at least managed to clarify to himself what he didn’t want to do: He didn’t want to enter the world of investment banking and become part of the same old machine. He had become fully aware of the potential of the internet, and wanted to be a pioneer in the developing online world, helping people interact with each other more efficiently and meaningfully.
After raising money selling out-of-season pocket books on eBay to raise money, Jonathan discovered Craigslist.org, and realized that the fundamentals of craigslist could be synthesized with the emerging social networking of facebook.com to revolutionize the world of online business networking.
He is currently working on perfecting the NYC market, and expanding Jobwich to the rest of the world.
