Jim holds a BA, Philosophy with a special emphasis in Psychology and Sociology from Santa Clara University. By combining this educational background with his experience at several large companies and growing his own companies through exit phases, Jim was inspired to “connect the dots” between profit-making startups, high growth large companies and ethical business leadership. He uncovered seven timeless principles we’ve forgotten in today’s culture.
Utilizing these principles, he created The Perceptive Business Process™, a 5-step process that empowers and aligns an entrepreneur's core strengths and values with appropriate business processes, key performance metrics, and technology solutions. The result is an organization that considers all its stakeholders - employees, shareholders, suppliers and partners - in its decision making and is poised for growth and scaling through collaborative capitalism.
