About Jareau

👋🏾 Hi! I’m Jareau, a writer and entrepreneur who’s spent the last 15 years building commerce and payment products. The majority of my career was focused on building two venture-backed payments infrastructure companies (Balanced and Finix). I’ve also spent a significant portion of my career solving commerce-related problems at companies like Milo.com (acquired by eBay in 2010), Tilt (acquired by Airbnb in 2016), and Pinterest. You can learn more about me here.

I’m active on Threads and publish an annual review on my personal site, where I write about music, soccer, coffee, film, and comic books from time to time.


I am not taking on new consulting clients at this time.


I don’t actively invest in individual companies but do advise a small number of companies in exchange for equity. I’m also a Limited Partner in several early-stage venture capital funds and am open to investing in more—especially those led by emerging fund managers.

I am a shareholder in some of the companies I write about, specifically: Adyen, dLocal, Finix, Shift4, Stripe, and Wise.
