Jan Ryan

Serial Entrepreneur, Director of Entrepreneurship & Innovation
With a passion for the next generation of entrepreneurs, Jan is excited about her current role as Director of Creative Entrepreneurship and Innovation a UT COFA, the opportunity to reinvent higher education by bringing human-centered design and entrepreneurship to creative students in the Arts. 

Jan brings 28 years of experience leading both early and expansion stage companies in technology, resulting in four successful acquisitions and one IPO. Whether as Founder, CEO, or Strategy consultant, Jan’s long-standing mantra has always been: “Fall in love with making your customers’ lives better.” 
Jan founded Social Dynamx in 2009, the industry's first SaaS-based social customer care platform for large brands to scale interactions with their customers. Social Dynamx attracted a host of named-brand customers, and in the Fall of 2012 was acquired by industry leader Lithium Technologies in San Francisco. The joint solution with Lithium has become the first end-to-end platform for managing the complete social customer experience inside many of the Fortune 500.

After the acquisition of Social Dynamx, Jan founded a strategic consulting practice, 3Hills Group, where she leverages her extensive operational experience to create growth strategies in technology companies, optimizing sales strategies and infrastructure. Having built industry-recognized sales teams in both public and privately held companies, she is able to share a unique metrics-based approach for optimizing revenue, customer growth and LTV. She advises portfolio companies in a number of private equity companies and venture backed start-ups alike.

When Jan is not working and mentoring with start-ups, she is usually on her bike or in Wimberley, Texas, where she and her husband are building a 100% off-the-grid ranch.
