Changing lanes: Shackelford leaving Digital Sandbox to head Mid-America Angels, Fountain Innovation Fund

Jul 11, 2019

Jeff Shackelford, Digital Sandbox KC Two hats are better than one, joked Jeff Shackelford , announcing he’s accepted a new role with the Enterprise Center in Johnson County. “I’m on the same highway but I’m kind of changing lanes,” Shackelford said as he takes the wheel as senior vice president of investment capital and financial operations at ECJC — where he’ll lead the Fountain Innovation Fund and Mid-America Angels — and turns down a path toward leaving the Digital Sandbox accelerator, he explained. Jeff Shackelford, Digital Sandbox “The last five years have been the most enjoyable years of my career — out of anything I’ve done,” he said. “So I love, love the Digital Sandbox and what we were able to accomplish.” Click here to learn more about Shackelford’s passion for startups and Kansas City. Shackelford will continue to serve as executive director of Digital Sandbox while the UMKC Innovation Center — which powers Digital Sandbox — and Maria Meyers , executive director and founder of KCSourceLink, work to find his successor. “[We really want to] make sure that nothing misses a beat with Digital Sandbox — and it won’t,” he said. “It  will remain at the Innovation Center. … Maria is working diligently [to find my replacement] as we speak, and I will continue to stay involved with the Sandbox as part of the evaluating team … even after we’ve signed a new director.” Click here to learn more about companies in the most recent Digital Sandbox cohort. Serving as a crucial, early stage investment funnel in Kansas City, Shackelford reiterated the state of Digital Sandbox weighed heavily on his decision to assume the position with ECJC and he’s eager the program could find new collaborations as he begins his new position. “This does give me an opportunity to move a little further down what I call the entrepreneurial, evolutionary path … see companies a little further down the line that are looking to raise a little bit more significant investment and scale and jump quicker,” he noted. A partner to such programs as Women’s Capital Connection and OneKC for Women, ECJC will also allow Shackelford to work alongside some of the brightest, entrepreneurial support minds in the Kansas City area, he said. “I’m looking forward to it. It’s going to be a lot of fun,” Shackelford said. “There’s so much going on in Kansas City, in the entrepreneurial space and all of these programs are so vital. So, for me, I just, I really, really enjoy being kind of in the midst of as much of it as I can.” Facebook Comments
