theDifference Consulting

Jason Chen

I am an innovation accelerator, entrepreneur, collaborator, and facilitator, and in my role at theDifference, I combine all these skills. I am passionate about solving complex problems and assisting organizations in expanding their horizons.

With over 20 years of experience in the start-up industry, I appreciate the creativity and energy of empowered innovators and technologists. I believe we can positively transform organizations and entire industries by bringing together the public and private sectors to identify and evaluate ideas, technologies, and capabilities.

My philosophy is rooted in the belief that the most effective solutions to any problem are at the intersection of innovation, people, and solution design.
