Innovation and Impact: Past Participants

Jack Kearney


Jack Kearney is a graduating with a BA in Math and Economics, with a minor in Computer Science and honors in Economics. His honors project consisted of a computational model of agents participating in combinatorial auctions in the trucking industry. Throughout his time at Oberlin Jack has been interested in entrepreneurship. In his sophomore year he noticed that the transportation options for students were limited. To solve this Jack founded Wilder Lines, a company focused on providing transportation between major urban areas during academic breaks. Wilder Lines is in the process of expanding to other colleges and will continue to run after Jack leaves Oberlin. Some of Jack's other interests include interactive/computer art, web development, and skateboarding. Originally he's from Minneapolis, MN.
