JAMES NORRIS

James has been searching all his life for the best ways to change himself and change the world. Growing up in poverty, he started as an entrepreneur at age 6 and since has co-built 9 startups and 16 organizations, including the premier conference for the effective altruism movement, the world’s first global lifehacking event series, Southeast Asia’s first social innovation hackathon series, and a university for today’s Leonardo da Vincis. He graduated from the University of Texas at Austin as a triple major/quadruple minor. He’s spent 20 years unsystematically upgrading himself.
