Jared Mattsson is a seasoned business development professional with a background in entrepreneurship, and experience in working with the immensely successful Birmingham tech start-up Shipt. While at Shipt, Jared was a part of the team that was instrumental in the implementation of the Shipt platform into Target’s nationwide markets and ultimately found his passion for technology-based solutions for business strategies. Jared is now the Co-Founder and COO of the networking app Linq—which he formed with two of Shipt’s founding team members. Originally conceived as a digital card in your Apple wallet with a QR code, now Linq has become a full suite of customizable NFC-enabled products that share the user’s Linq page with a simple tap or scan. Jared has a passion for bringing innovation and leadership to business operations, and Linq is truly an expression of this passion
