I’m thankful for Jacques’ leadership in keeping the University community connected and vibrant.

Dear Friends, I have known Jacques Habra for more than five years and found him to be a person of great intellect, warm and personable, and impeccable integrity. Jacques serves on our Westmont Foundation board and it is this context that I have seen his great heart for our community and the ways in which all spheres of society can come together to serve the greater good. In whatever role Jacques serves, I am confident he will bring the same level of integrity, dedication and effectiveness. I give Jacques my highest, unqualified endorsement.

Jacques Habra possesses that magical combination of innovation, creativity, talent and drive in making things happen. Whether it’s starting up a new entrepreneurial venture, assisting others in their business goals or raising funds for a variety of important health-related and educational non-profit organizations, we can count on Jacques to help our community succeed and thrive.
I have known Jacques personally and professionally for over five years. I first worked with him through the Scheinfeld Center for Entrepreneurship and Innovation at Santa Barbara City College. Subsequently I have served on the MIT Enterprise Forum and have worked with him on several community events and initiatives. I have the highest regard for his business acumen, professional capabilities and personal integrity. I consider him a valuable colleague and prominent member of the Santa Barbara community.
I know Jacques on both a personal and professional level. He has a unique ability to work with people, assess the situation, clarify common goals and create a collaborative successful outcome. Jacques is charismatic, extremely bright and cutting edge in his field. He is not only successful in his own endeavors, but helps other realize their potential as well.
Jacques is an engaging and dynamic speaker. He never fails to inform, inspire and entertain my entrepreneurial students.
Being mentored by Jacques has been very helpful for my overall growth as a person and learning more about how a successful business operates as well. Jacques is very talented at identifying personal issues that may be holding someone back from building a business and is extremely knowledgeable about how to build a successful business whether it be online marketing, different methods of funding, building a team etc. He has a very good sense of organization and creating action oriented plans to turn a start up into a successful income generating business. I definitely recommend Jacques’ online courses to any entrepreneur who is looking to take their business to the next level!
Noospheric has provided support to me throughout my entrepreneurship career both in my current company, StudySoup as well as my previous endeavors. Jacques has provided a range of advisory support from pitch practice, to hiring the right talent and most importantly recently for us, bringing on investors. I’m a huge fan of Noospheric!
It’s innovative entrepreneurs like Jacques that will keep America’s technology future bright.
Jacques Habra and Noospheric have been trusted partners to The Joy Agency. Jacques brings his brilliance, caring, and insightful perspective everywhere he goes. I’m deeply grateful for his mentorship, as he has grown me as a leader and a business owner.
Having Jacques’ expertise has been really helpful.
Jacques’ mentorship and coaching have been an invaluable tool in both my personal and professional growth. I met Jacques when I was graduating college and through his care, support, and expertise I have been able to elevate my personal passions into businesses and a career that I very much enjoy. I now have the opportunity to give back the valuable lessons that I learned through Jacques’s mentorship to other individuals and their businesses to in turn help them to grow into their potential.
Jacques and Noospheric have provided incredible guidance and support in our pursuit of building FuelBox Inc. from a single concept to a complete consumer electronics brand that will launch innovative products for years to come!
Since Noospheric’s involvement with our company, we were able to transform our one product company to a business that can capture investment and become an industry leader.
For more than 10 years Jacques and I have maintained a highly professional working relationship that has also spawned a great friendship. When we first met, I was a young, inexperienced graphic designer, but Jacques gave me a chance to work with him on his real-world projects when most people would hesitate to hire someone so green. He has an amazing ability to inspire and instill confidence in those around him, which (I believe) is a sign of a great leader and mentor. Jacques’ eye for great business opportunities and his dedication to making those around him successful make him a true entrepreneur and an extremely valuable asset to any business.
What makes Jacques special is not how successful he is at such an unusually young age, or the fact that he excels in so many facets, it’s that he has a very big heart and gives of his time and energy. But I’m biased, I also consider him a great friend.

I first met Jacques Habra during his hosting of one of the first Catalyst for Thought events. He was among the founding team. It was actually his verve, motivation and unbelievable ability to communicate and inspire an audience that later influenced my decision to join the Catalyst team as Speaker Liaison. In the years since then we’ve developed a great friendship and he has also been a valuable sounding board for various business ideas, projects and personal adventures. It’s been a pleasure working with him and I look forward to more projects to come!
