Jeffrey Kalmikoff is a Partner and Chief Creative Officer of skinnyCorp, the company behind Threadless. He’s also a Techstars mentor.

Threadless is about their community, and Jeffrey has worked with many Techstars companies such as Foodzie and some of the new 2009 companies to help them work effectively with their own communities. As he’s fond of saying, “If you treat your customers as your friends, they will respond in kind.

Jeffrey recently shared his thoughts on being a Techstars mentor in his thoughtful post “What’s in it for me?” saying “While I may have expertise to offer this class of Techstars, they also have a lot to offer me by way of inspiration.

We’re psyched to have Jeffrey helping out at Techstars, along with so many other fantastic mentors.
