CEO and Co-founder, Vectorform
Jason Vazzano is CEO and Co-founder of Vectorform. Vectorform is a global invention company that creates digital products and experiences that are changing the way you experience the world. Launched in 1999, the company has a history of developing “first of a kind” emerging technology solutions for the most innovative companies in the world, including Google, Walt Disney, Microsoft, Nike, BMW, and American Express, just to name a few. For example, in 2008, Vectorform developed the first iPhone App that remotely controlled a vehicle. A few years later in 2014, they developed a first-of-a-kind consumer facing app as part of a larger IOT platform, which combined innovative marketing solutions and gamification—for Detroit’s energy utility, DTE. This platform emerged as the most successful energy optimization program for a utility and ultimately led to the spinoff of a new venture called Powerley, jointly owned by Vectorform and DTE. Vectorform has five global offices in Seattle, Detroit, New York, Munich, and Hyderabad. Mr. Vazzano was recognized by DBusiness Magazine in 2013 as one of the Top 30 in Their 30s and under his leadership, Vectorform was named Automation Alley Technology company of the year in 2016. In addition, Jason is a board member of Crossroads for Youth, a non-profit organization that focuses on giving children the tools and skills required to lead productive and happy lives. He also serves on the Advisory Board of the Oakland University Information & Decision Sciences Department.
