Overview

Jenny supports associates in engagement with early-stage businesses.

Jenny brings nearly a decade of experience working with entrepreneurs and the organizations that support early-stage businesses. She is well aware of nuances within support structures and needs of founders and is able to draw on her background of ecosystem development to build a firmwide program of engagement for associates.   

At Husch Blackwell, Jenny identifies and manages relationships with organizations that promote growth opportunities for early-stage companies, entrepreneurs and innovators. Working across business units within the firm, Jenny provides hands-on opportunities for associates to take what they are learning from the firm’s partners and training programs and put those skills into practice. She works with associates to develop programming and provide oversight of activities and engagement related to entrepreneurs and early-stage founders.

Jenny has long been passionate about entrepreneurship and its impact on both local communities and the broader economy. She’s excited about the contribution new businesses make to the cultural fabric of their cities. She joined Husch Blackwell, eager to see a law firm seeking to expand engagement with early-stage founders through associate involvement. She has been particularly excited to see the great passion attorneys have for their work and to help them pour that passion into early-stage businesses, connecting them with projects that will grow their careers, assist local entrepreneurs and develop their communities.
