I’m thrilled to announce that Coder Dojo founder James Whelton will be joining Resolute .VC as our Hacker in Residence. At the age of 20, James has an impressive background across a broad range of tech, from computer hacking to iOS development to social platform data parsing and analysis. James also is a frequent speaker and panelist. James presently spends most of his time as a social entrepreneur, having founded Coder Dojo – a global movement to teach the world’s youth to code.
(For a little color on James, check out his TED Talk here.)
James’s primary mission at Resolute will be as an ambassador to the next generation of great entrepreneurs – the teens who are imagining new ways to build and use technology to change the world. James will not only help Resolute evaluate technologies, he’ll help us understand a whole new generation of innovators and a whole new way of thinking about innovation. Which, I’m convinced, is going to be a key to our long term success.
They say you can’t teach an old dog new tricks; but this old dog barks to differ.
