Krys Freeman is one of today’s rising entrepreneurs, technologists and visionaries.
Equal parts hacker, strategist and activist, Krys is affectionately known by colleagues as the “Chief Hactivist” or (Hacker in Residence) at GreenBiz Group headquarters (Oakland, CA). Considered a resource for everything from the best productivity apps to those that provide convenience through sharing, Krys is a firm believer in technology as a vehicle for radical change.
To that end, Krys seeks out projects that stretch our imagination. While many of us speak of technology as the “next” frontier, the little red pill that will make our biggest systems challenges disappear, Krys believes that technology is now – a system of means to multiple ends. The real innovation opportunities lie in design thinking; the compromises and hard decision making that should happen before an app or website is built. And she is committed to finding new ways to think of and use technology as a vehicle for tackling enterprise and civic challenges.
