Jim is a serial social entrepreneur with three decades of experience in tech and four in regenerative design, sustainability, and climate. He is co-founder and CEO of Tru Social and JLINC Labs and co-founder of Planetwork. In 2000, the Planetwork conference launched a tech community initiative for a global network – before Facebook. Jim also funded a key social patent, resulting in shares in the Linkedin IPO.
He convened the early ‘digital identity’ and ‘decentralized personal data’ movements and, in 2015, had a breakthrough and formed JLINC. By 2020, with the whole society waking up to the social media crisis, he started Tru.net.
