Jean Sini is a New York-based entrepreneur, public speaker[1], angel investor,[2] computer scientist, and software executive of French descent, noted for his active investing roles in early-stage startups, as well as his contributions to mobile computing standardization efforts [3] and profiled[4][5] for his participation in the web 2.0 movement and ecosystem. Since September 2018, he is part of First Round Capital's Angel Track in New York[6].


Jean Sini, a graduate from Ecole Nationale Supérieure des Télécommunications in Paris, moved to Silicon Valley and joined Oracle Corporation in 1996.[7] From 2000 to 2004, he was director of software engineering in the company’s server technologies division, while simultaneously representing Oracle at several standards organizations including PayCircle and the Open Mobile Alliance. He also led initial efforts promoting a standard protocol to support push email, leading to the first draft of Push IMAP. He holds several patents[8][9][10] related to online mobile computing and commerce.

In 2004, he joined Symbol Technologies (acquired by Motorola in 2007) as senior director of software engineering, and continued work on Push IMAP at IETF.

In 2005, he co-founded[11] Activeweave, inc., a Silicon Valley-based startup, operating in the attention management and social web arenas.[12][13] As Chief Technology Officer, he built the company from inception to funding to launch, and scaled its architecture to accommodate growing traffic as its flagship service BlogRovR earned recommended[14] Firefox add-on status.

In April 2008, he sold[15] Activeweave, inc. to Buzzlogic, inc. and he joined the acquiring organization as Chief Technology Officer.[16]

In March 2009, he founded Untangly, inc., a stealth, Silicon Valley-based software startup working on large-scale web mining, where he was Chief Technology Officer.[17] Untangly was a division of Mint. It is now part of Intuit as part of Intuit's acquisition of Mint in September 2009.[18]

In August 2012, he joined E-Commerce startup One Kings Lane as Chief Technology Officer, to further the company's focus on mobile commerce.[19]

In November 2013, he co-founded Fountain Software, Inc. with Aaron Patzer,[20] building machine learning technology to instantly analyze questions asked by consumers, in plain English, through natural language processing techniques, to connect them with relevant subject matter experts and professionals.

Fountain Software was sold to Porch.com in October 2015. Sini became the leader of Porch’s San Francisco office.[21]

In October 2016, he joined FinTech startup Cadre as Chief Technology Officer[22], backed by Joshua Kushner's Thrive Capital, Khosla Ventures, Founders Fund, General Catalyst, and Andreessen Horowitz.
