CO-FOunder & CTO

Jim Groot

As CTO, Jim leads Green City Watch’s long-term technology vision, and is responsible for applied research, university collaboration, industry thought leadership and advanced technology incubations. Whether imagining completely new products or finding novel uses for existing solutions, Jim is motivated by problems that defy easy answers and are too big to tackle alone.

Jim has a passion for new and emerging technologies. A love he has passed on to his students at his alma mater, the University of Amsterdam, where he taught remote sensing and GIS prior to Green City Watch.

He holds degrees in earth sciences (BSc & MSc) with specialisations GIS from the Vrije Universiteit Amsterdam and remote sensing from Wageningen University. He continues to be fascinated by and follow all things related to space travel.
