Jim Rosen

I work with entrepreneurs to improve performance and foster well-being.
My approach is informed by decades of experience in both the technology and the contemplative worlds. As an entrepreneur who co-founded two successful technology firms, I have extensive hands-on experience building companies. Having practiced, studied, and taught mindfulness and meditation for decades, I’ve learned how rich this nexus of work and mindfulness is.

My approach draws on modern neuroscience, practical skills development, and the wisdom of mindfulness to support your professional and personal growth.
