About Jim

I am an entrepreneur and independent consultant to the start-up community in the areas of 3D printing, business development, manufacturing and economic development. For the past year I was living in Korea where I founded a B2B 3D printing service. I have since returned to the US and am interested in finding other co-founders or partners to continue work on my business vision in Korea or their ideas, particularly those relating to 3D printing, Internet of Things (IoT), wearable devices and advanced manufacturing technologies. I can also be a contract advisor or mentor to other startups. I have worked with companies, entrepreneurs, economic development organizations, governments, incubators and accelerators to help them achieve their business development, operational and economic development incentive goals (non-dilutive funding). I am interested in working with both individuals and companies looking to start up or expand beyond their local markets.
