Jason Maskell, Founder and Director
An industry veteran, Jason Maskell has been working in the adult business for a period of over 18 years and counting! During this period, he worked in a variety of sectors from retail to sales, marketing to business consultancy.
Due to his expertise, Jason has featured in mainstream media talking about his experience in this sector and has featured on Channel 4, Channel 5, the FT, BBC Radio 5 Live amongst many others.
It was whilst working with numerous clients in the adult sector and being invited to be involved in startup business opportunities, Jason soon realized that majority of these companies had lack of access to investment. It was this that inspired him to launch a crowdfunding platform specifically tailored to adult lifestyle and sexual health.
With this in mind, Jason has brought together a team of experts in their own fields to advise and support the launch and growth of adultXfunding.
