Jeb Banner believes that he learned everything about business from being in a band. As a child, he was immediately infatuated with music and spent his days analyzing the intricacies of the rhythms, instruments, and melodies. Jeb continued to develop his talent in college through his involvement in the Bloomington music scene, withholding the philosophy that relationships are more valuable than good grades. The skills he learned from music met entrepreneurship when he began auctioning antiques on eBay in 1999. He believes that if you don’t care about what you’re doing, don’t do it. After becoming burned out from eBay, he proposed the first project of his soon-to-be company, SmallBox, which was building NUVO's website. Jeb believes there are particular elements in the alchemy of business - market, time, and urgency to the opportunity. When his SmallBox team recognized a need in the non-profit space for software, he decided to separate it from SmallBox and became CEO of Boardable in 2018. Tune in to learn about Jeb’s accidental creation of Music Family Tree, his involvement in starting The Speak Easy and other recognizable businesses in Indianapolis, and his philosophy behind the alchemy of business. Drink deep of the culture that surrounds you this week with Jeb Banner of Boardable.
