Jim's Bio

Jim joined the team at Volition in 2014 and is responsible for evaluating and executing new investment opportunities on the Internet & Consumer team and assisting with current portfolio operations. He focuses on consolidation platforms, the movement of physical things, ad tech, marketplaces, and other internet transactional businesses.


  • Jim enjoys fishing for striped bass off of Block Island, RI. (He claims nothing tastes better than fresh fish caught yourself).
  • When not fishing, he can be found on the beach every weekend in the summer.
  • He’s a diehard Boston sports fan. It’s on his bucket list is to visit every MLB stadium.
  • Jim loves traveling and trying local delicacies. His favorite country so far is Malta.


“I view investing as a true partnership and not a business transaction. Because of that, I spend the majority of my time on the road meeting entrepreneurs in-person and discussing how Volition can be a value-add partner.”

“All startups have their unique challenges that I strive to understand and come up with tailored solutions to ensure Founders can realize their ambitions.”
