Jason Bornstein


Moving the needle toward progress.

Jason roots for the underdog, for those punching above their weight with original thought and a relentless drive. He is a research-led and tactical investor specializing in marketing, an often overlooked team in venture-backed companies that owns one of the largest line items on the P&L. As a Principal at Forerunner, Jason works with founders who are moving the needle toward progress across categories and business models.

Prior to Forerunner, Jason was an early employee at Bonobos, one of Forerunner’s earliest investments, where he was a key member of the team that built one of the first digitally-native D2C. Jason received an MBA from Stanford GSB in 2018 and graduated from Northwestern University with a B.A. in Communication Studies in 2009.
