About Sean Johnson
My name is Sean Johnson, and I’m a partner at Digital Intent in Chicago, helping dozens of startups and companies like Groupon, Follett and Sittercity build amazing products. Current clients include GiftBar, WrightWood Furniture, Pinpoint Health and more.
I’m also a partner in the Founder’s Equity Fund, an early stage fund designed to rapidly increase valuation in a portfolio of pre-revenue businesses. Current portfolio companies include Purely Fashion, SmartMom and LearnLeo.
I spent five years in New York at EducationDynamics, the premier higher education marketing company in the country. Most of that time was spent as their Creative Director, where I was responsible for the aesthetic design for over 850 projects seen by over 6 million students. I also led strategy and design for a number of online applications, including a social networking site called UPeers that was used at over 200 universities.
I have written for Lifehacker, Technori, One Day One Job, Dumb Little Man and more. I have also spoken at universities around the country on career development and entreprneneurship.
Most of what I write on this site is about personal development and making the most of your professional life. I also frequently write about entrepreneurship, product development, and occasionally about topics related to faith and internal growth.
