Education and Work:
For over a decade I’ve been leading innovation-focused projects, having founded not-for-profit organizations and small businesses, as well as working in municipal government, in universities, and consulting to a wide variety of social enterprises, foundations, and corporate leaders. My core passion lies in harnessing technology, strategy, and human-centered design to scale social impact. You can learn more at www.linkedin.com/in/jamesarron.
I studied at Dalhousie University where I majored in International Development, and completed a certificate in Entrepreneurship. I’ve also been educated through Fellowship programs provided by Venture for Canada, MaRS Discovery District, and 21 INC.
