What do you do when someone tells you your idea will never work, and that you should probably just give up now?
For Jeff Martin, co-founder of Pipcorn, it was actually exactly what he needed to hear. In fact, he was able to leverage that negativity and use it as fuel on the road to success.
A born problem-solver, Jeff has been well versed in the snack food business since the age of ten, selling popcorn to his three siblings straight from his bedroom. Even after he was laid off during the recession from his job in investment banking, the entrepreneur-at-heart had the confidence to make something out of nothing, taking special mini heirloom kernels and turning it into the Pipcorn we know and love today!
Additionally, Jeff’s finance background and experience as an entrepreneur make him a key element on the Pipcorn leadership team and allow him to apply his skills to a hands-on role in the brand. He is able to act quickly and makes decisions by focusing on the end goal and the most efficient way to get there.
