Jeff Saperstein


Author, teacher, consultant and enabler in how technology can be used to create organic growth in economic development for regions and success for organizations.  As co-founder, I organized the trip to Israel in April 2008 and was a co-organizer of the London/Cambridge trip with JD Lasica.

My work and personal fulfillment is in helping others to be successful through applications of education, business, and relationships. I teach at San Francisco State University, European School of Management in Paris, and on-site at Cisco and other corporations. My published books and case studies are focused upon best practices for innovation (Toyota: Driving the Mainstream Market to Purchase Hybrid Electronic Vehicles is one of the top ten most popular business case studies for business schools). I have worked with government, private corporations, and NGO’s to use marketing leveraged by technology, metrics, and processes to increase growth.
