Marc Smookler

Founded 6 companies–4 of which are current market leaders in their respective spaces: a leading commercial real estate data platform, a leading online retailer, a unified communications provider, and a cutting-edge marketing service platform.

His largest success to date is Fonality—a cloud & open-source based PBX competitor to Avaya and Cisco (acquired by NetFortis). Marc also founded Sake Social, the largest online retailer and highest ranking online destination for all things Japanese sake. His most recent project, IdealSpot, helps everyone in the commercial real estate and retail ecosystems better understand local markets and communities through the use of better data.

Marc is also a partner/mentor for Austin’s tech incubator/fund(s) Capital Factory and TechStars, and invests and serves as a board member/advisor for a number of companies in the B2SMB/B2C spaces.
