He managed Audipha, a Siemens French agency at the time, he then created Oticon France, a subsidiary of the then world leader in the hearing aids industry. He then created the Federation Francaise de l audition and set up a framework of: manufacturing, distribution and franchising, as well as post graduation training which complemented the hearing aids being sold; as well as a research laboratory, professional syndicate, and mutual insurance. This evolved into the Audika group in the hands of former staff.
Passionate about design, J.P.created an acclaimed high fashion collection in Paris in 1977 with the technical assistance of Thierry Mugler’s team.
In London 1986 he created the van Dijck Club, which became the iconic rendez-vous of young cosmopolitan society.
Most recently JP is investing in land banking in Brazil.
Thirty years ago, JP created a small boat yard in Cornwall, in order to do up three high sea fishing vessels he had bought, with aim to start a modular international waters floating village. Technology shortcomings and political hostility made it difficult for the project to be viable, at the time. He is now beyond excited the technology has caught up to his dream of floating villages and is ready for the next adventure in his life – to live on a floating island.

Nima is cofounder of Impactonomy Innovation Labs, abbreviated “iiLabs+”, the curator behind innovation ecosystems, startups & social enterprises like #CheerForPeace, incubated at the IBQP (Brazilian Institute for Quality & Productivity) Center for Innovation, where he also serves as Entrepreneur in Residence.

Nima has held management roles in the social enterprise, IT, automotive, financial, communications, consulting & real estate sectors.
He is helping unite the Brazilian & Canadian startups ecosystems so that, through collaboration & cross-migration (both physical & digital knowledge transfer), exponential value-add can be created for both innovation environments & perhaps even for the world at large!
He is currently helping the Founder Institute, the world’s largest “idea stage” startup accelerator, strategically establish operations in Brazil by launching a regional chapter in Curitiba, Brazil’s “digital & smart city”.
Nima dreams of a future that’s not too far away and that is dramatically better for everyone than that which is being predicted by the masses. This future is powered by the next frontiers of innovation: collaboration, globalization (hyper-migration) & singularity – which make a pragmatic case for the notions of hyper-innovation (with infinite number of monopolies), seasteading & aquapreneurship very rational & reasonable transitions towards the multiplanetary civilization of our race and beyond!
