Jane is a former lawyer who has spent her career specializing in venture capital. She ran a fund for a couple of decades and oversaw investments in start-up/early stage companies in a broad cross sector of industries.
With first-hand experience of the world of cut-throat competition, individualism and isolationism, and having seen the impacts of those paradigms amplified by technology, she founded Peacebeam in 2016.
Peacebeam is a digital publisher working at the intersection of technology, wisdom and interconnection. Jane is passionate about reimagining the role of the entrepreneur and the company and creating a new economic story by experimenting with value and capital. She is pioneering the development of Kindness Capital at Peacebeam through Kinder-Pay and has recently authored The Path of the Entrepreneur, Understanding Your Shadow, for the London School of Economics accelerator LSE Generate.
As well as running Peacebeam she advises entrepreneurs and executives on leadership development through inner transformation, particularly mapping their relationship to power.
Jane sees that in order to traverse the challenging times we live in there needs to be an evolution from the pursuit of individual wellbeing to the pursuit of collective worldbeing and believes that understanding the ‘technology’ of kindness and its creative power is the pathway to a saner future for the planet.
