Jason Smith developed Eureka Fund as a side project while working as Research Fellow for the National Geographic Society's Genographic Project. While leading research and field expeditions to investigate human origins, Smith saw colleagues - in particular younger scientists - with great projects who were struggling to fund their research. Eureka Fund grew out of his desire to see those projects realized.

Prior to National Geographic, Smith was Product Manager at Silicon Genetics, a bioinformatics company that was acquired by Agilent Technologies in 2004. Smith graduated with Honors from Stanford University.
