Aloft and Jason Halpern

The road to success was not an easy one for Jason. He has suffered major setbacks like all other entrepreneurs worth their salt. For instance, a few years back, a major deal that he had worn debacle majorly when the entire project was scraped. He has managed to make better investment choices over time. His current projects make him probably the most engaged man in the entire western hemisphere.

Jason’s Background

Jason Halpern with Crunchbase Product

Jason was born and raised by a real estate developer of a father. His first experience in the field was when he worked for his father’s company, the Halpern real estate industry. When he quit, he had the dream of starting his own company. When he is not busy looking after his construction projects or in high profile meetings striking deals, Jason likes to relax at home with his family. He has a boy from a previous marriage and he really enjoy spending time with him. One of the interests that he takes after his own father is the fact that he really loves race cars. He has always wanted to take part in the events especially last decade but hasn’t gotten a chance to do it. He is one business leader to look out for.
