Open sharing and co-creation of all kinds are the natural steps in digital transformation, creativity, production, and distribution. Closed business models and innovation done in silos are things of the past.  

More than half of the world’s population has grown with the Internet and social media with a new expectation: an inalienable right to participate.

The organisations that will flourish in the future will be built by those best able to channel the participatory energy of those around them.


I’m Jaime,

After a brief stint in consulting, I realized the incredible potential openness held for our organisations and society and how abstract and nebulous it can feel to build open organisations.

That’s why I spent the last ten years immersed in open communities. I helped bring to life the Remodel program with the Danish Design Center and wrote tens of articles on Bold and Open and other publications.  

I Head-coached communities with thousands of participants in the Akimbo courses created by Seth Godin.

I helped shape the open strategy at the SNCF (French National Railways), Open Lande, and the ADEME (French Agency for the Ecological Transition), and I co-founded the Repair Café in Nice and Ouishare in Madrid.
