Jason Johnson is the CEO and co-founder of August Home, maker of the August Smart Lock, now owned by the world’s largest access control company Assa Abloy/Yale. Recognized by Goldman Sachs on their list of top 100 Entrepreneurs, Jason is also a managing partner of tech startup community Founders Den and is the founder of the Internet of Things Consortium. From the tree-covered hills of Portland Oregon, Jason was featured in the Amazon Studios documentary “This is What We Make” and lives in Napa California with his wife and son. In this episode, we talk about activism in tech, working with the military, giving back with the Founders pledge, and how we can invest in more underrepresented and minority founders.  - @jcjohnson
