Adam Jackson is an entrepreneur who is obsessed with creating beautiful and easy to use mobile and web user interfaces. He is currently CEO and co-founder of Doctor On Demand, a venture-backed startup that allows patients to video chat with a US-licensed doctor on their smartphone or tablet, saving them time, money and stress.
His previous business, DriverSide (founded in 2007), served thousands of automotive dealerships and repair facilities by helping them retain existing and gain new customers through a suite of SaaS offerings. It was acquired by Advance Auto Parts (AAP) in September of 2011.
His first venture-backed business, MarketSquare (founded in 2004), was the first online local shopping destination on the Internet. In 2005 it was acquired by StepUp Commerce, a similar service, which was subsequently acquired by Intuit (INTU) in September of 2006.
Over the past eight years, he has also been an active angel investor and advisor to over two dozen companies, most of which have had successful exits or have done significant follow-on financing. Adam began his career as a software engineer and architect and holds a computer science degree from Vanderbilt University.
