A globally-recognized innovator, entrepreneur and professor, Jim’s passion centers around creating new technology that makes people’s lives better, more productive and more efficient.
In 2003, Jim founded BigBelly Solar after inventing the world’s first solar-powered, web-connected waste compactor. BigBelly makes waste collection seven times more efficient – slashing the travel of one of the world’s dirtiest and most expensive vehicles – garbage trucks. Installed in all 50 states and 54 countries, this “IoT = Internet of Trash” invention reshaped a multi-billion-dollar global industry and sparked other Smart City successes.
In 2014, Jim founded Modifi, an “Internet of Things + Internet of People” company that brings sensors, artificial intelligence and humans together to reshape many other industries. Tackling logistics, safety and workforce performance, Modifi serves some of America’s biggest brands in telecom, utilities, facilities and retail. Modifi is an open platform: you can build your own enterprise-grade software in minutes with drag and drop ease. www.modifi.io email@example.com
