    Jon Cook is a senior at Grand Valley State University in Grand Rapids, MI pursuing a double major in Finance and Accounting.

    Despite having spent the past 4 years studying Accounting, Jon promises he is more exciting than your stereotypical accountant. Outside of class and homework, Jon has developed the Technology Showcase on Grand Valley's campus. It is a space that allows students to interact with cutting edge technologies like the Microsoft HoloLens, HTC Vive, 3D printers, etc,. Jonathan's current project is an introduction to Design Thinking, active citizenship and team building that will be rolled out to the ~4,500 incoming freshman that Grand Valley receives each year. 

    In the past, Jon has worked with Seamless, an Internet of Things Accelerator, to help six teams from around the world commercialize their products. Last year, Jon dropped out of school for a stint at Google as a business consultant. Before that, Jon gained experience through launching his startup FitFrames and working with the startup community around his city. 

    Ways Jon enjoys spending his free time: Reading the latest XKCD comic, backpacking foreign countries, cycling around Grand Rapids and eating all the food!
