Justin began his college career as a physics major, but after three and a half years he decided to pursue a career in finance. Justin joined the University Venture Fund (UVF) in October 2012 and has been primarily interested in SaaS and technology companies.
At around the same time as he joined UVF, he was given a job as a marketing intern at a SaaS startup named HireVue. After a few months, he was promoted to a full time Financial Analyst and has secured $1.5 million for the company in the form of a tax incentive from the Utah Governor's Office of Economic Development.
He will be graduating in May 2014 and hopes to pursue a career in Investment Banking within TMT.
