Jim Cashel


Jim Cashel co-founded Forum One in 1996, inspired by the possibilities of the web and online community. He has an eclectic background—a bachelor’s degree in human biology from Stanford, a master’s from Harvard’s Kennedy School, and a medical degree from Harvard Medical School. Jim plays a lead role in Forum One’s work to assist public- and private-sector organizations in global web strategy, online community development, mobile strategies, and data work. When Jim co-founded Forum One, there was one mission: Applying new and promising technologies to address societal problems of importance. That mission still guides Forum One today.
