President & CEO
Jacobson Consulting Applications, Inc
When I left the corporate world back in the mid-80’s (yes, I’m old), I started a computer consulting company with a friend of mine. It seemed like the thing to do, given that businesses were hungry for PCs, computer networks and the latest software. One of my first clients was NYU Medical Center and one of my first projects was to help them select and implement a new fundraising system. I remember researching a lot of options – the old fashioned way, by perusing the ads in the back pages of nonprofit trade magazines. Back then, who knew that there were actually publications for nonprofits?
