About the Author:
Best-Selling Author of “Making Dollars While Making Change”
Founder & CEO, Quartz Water Source
Jonathan Quarles has had a longstanding passion for building businesses and creating change. As a serial entrepreneur, he started his first business as the top-selling paperboy in his neighborhood at the age of 8. Thirty years later, Jonathan has created and developed more than 10 businesses. He is an avid angel investor, focusing on fast-growing, disruptive companies with a social impact component.
In 2003, Jonathan leaned on his ability to build bridges between people and ideas to launch The BTL Group. Today, The BTL Group continues its journey as a strategic consulting business and has expanded its geographic footprint outside of the U.S. Jonathan brings his passion for cultural exchange to both the Global Ties Detroit and U.S. boards.
As a native of Flint, Michigan, Jonathan couldn’t sit on the sidelines as a water crisis plagued his hometown. He knew that a challenge of this magnitude called for an unprecedented solution – with that, he founded Quartz Water Source. Quartz views itself as a hub for ‘second line’ clean water solutions that supplements municipal water.
Much like the companies that Jonathan invests in, his vision for Quartz is not only as a disruptor, but also as a force for good. Quartz has pledged to donate a portion of its proceeds to water-related projects in underserved areas around the U.S. via a donor-advised fund. In many ways, Quartz has been an embodiment of Jonathan’s lifelong pursuit to eradicate poverty through business and entrepreneurship.
Jonathan is also a best-selling author. His book, Making Dollars While Making Change, a half memoir, half playbook on how to use business as a platform for social impact, available for purchase on Amazon.com.
