Jeff Lin


Hey, I'm Jeff Lin, Co-founder and CEO of Pennant and Founder of Bust Out.

Pennant (founded in 2022) is an OTT platform that enables performing artists to launch their own custom-branded subscription video channel for TV, web, mobile, and mixed-reality. Bust Out (founded in 2005) is a digital agency that makes websites, apps, enterprise software, and digital experiences.

In addition to operating Pennant and Bust Out, I am a Limited Partner at Groove Capital and Tundra Ventures, two early-stage venture capital firms in Minneapolis. I serve on the Boards of Directors of the Ordway Center for the Performing Arts and Theater Latté Da. I am a Governing Member of the Saint Paul Chamber Orchestra and a member of the Advisory Board at the Schubert Club. I'm also an active member of the Minnesota chapter of Entrepreneurs' Organization.

A native of Oberlin, Ohio, I found my way to Minnesota via Carleton College where I studied Molecular Biology and German, played soccer, and had a blast. I currently live in Minneapolis with my wife Sarah and our three young children. My goals in life are to enjoy breakfast and dinner with my family every day, and to make the world a better place.
