Jeremy Shaki, Co-Founder and CEO of Lighthouse Labs

As Co-Founder and CEO of Lighthouse Labs, Jeremy Shaki has spent a majority of his time helping tech communities think of improved ways in which to build their technology talent both for the immediate and long term futures. With a background in Experiential Marketing and Operations, Jeremy has endeavoured to build an education organization that relies on and feeds local developer and technology communities with the expectation that the only way that tech education can truly maintain it’s relevance is to be completely interconnected with those of whom are spending their days pushing boundaries and innovating.
