JACKSONVILLE, Fla., June 21, 2021 – The PS27 Foundation is pleased to announce Jordan Walker has joined its board of directors. The PS27 Foundation is a non-profit 501(C)(3) organization that provides training and development for entrepreneurs through its globally recognized programs such as Leadership Week, Peer-to-Peer Workshops, Female Founders Forum, Black Entrepreneurs Forum, and the Veterans Entrepreneurs Forum.
“Our Board of Directors is composed of a dedicated team of business leaders and entrepreneurs committed to giving back to our community by providing programs, resources, and mentorship to early-stage startups,” said Jim Stallings, Chairman of the PS27 Foundation. “We’ve had the privilege of getting to know Jordan since his time as a student at the University of North Florida and through his participation in our many programs. We are excited to channel Jordan’s talent, expertise, and energy into furthering our mission. He is a role model in so many ways.”
Over Jordan’s career, he has gained experience by working with small companies and startups as well as large companies such as Hilton, Margaritaville, and Marriott. After having worked in the agency world for many years, Walker and his co-founders decided they were well prepared to launch their own startup, Yac. Yac is an Orlando-based company that allows people to use voice and video messages to share designs, talk to their team, and reclaim their day. This audio-first messaging platform helps eliminate meetings with voice messages, searchable transcription, and async screen sharing. The company recently raised over ~$10M in funding from GGV Capital, Betaworks Ventures, Active Capital, and Slack and has been mentioned in TechCrunch, Wall Street Journal, Business Insider, and Fast Company. Walker holds a Bachelor’s Degree in Marketing and Business Management from the University of North Florida.
