Mr. Hirschman is the Founder and President of SilverFox Broadband, a provider of TV, phone, and Internet access to senior housing communities nationwide.  SilverFox, headquartered in Chicago, IL, is one of the first and only companies to focus especially on providing Internet access to seniors nationally.

Prior to founding SilverFox Broadband, Mr. Hirschman helped co-found X-Wires Broadband.  X-Wires started out as a wireless ISP and morphed into a company that provided managed internet access for student housing properties nationwide, including several colleges’ on-campus residence halls.  In 2010 X-Wires was successfully sold to a strategic buyer. 

Mr. Hirschman then raised $21 million in private equity financing for the strategic purchase of two managed Internet companies, one in the hotel space and another in student housing.  In addition to SilverFox Broadband, Mr. Hirschman is a serial entrepreneur and is working on multiple high-technology software and app projects, both for the senior housing/healthcare space and for general public use.  Mr. Hirschman received a BBA in Economics from the University of Iowa.
