VP of Partnerships

Jake Vines

Dallas has been home for most of my life. After graduating from Lake Highlands High School, I traveled every bit of 90 miles to Waco, TX and attended Baylor University where I walked the stage with a degree in Entrepreneurship. I played football for the Bears for a little while until I realized that, at that level, you have to actually enjoy playing football! (There’s more to that story if you ever want to hear it, was an impactful period for me).

Since joining Pursuit in 2016, I have held many different roles from recruiting to business development to leading teams. Through this experience, I have a clear perspective into our partner’s needs/challenges and how Pursuit is positioned to deliver. My focus has been developing strategic relationships to support Pursuit’s continued growth, primarily within the VC/PE space.

Outside of work, you will find me hooping/playing some sport, watching movies, finding the best restaurant patio, or listening to live music…all of those things with my wonderful wife, Eri, and our bowling ball of a dog, Sumo. Most importantly, I’ve put my trust in Jesus and stumble forward along the path to become the man He’s created me to be. Go Bears.
