What can I do for you?

Bold And Open is actionable business advice for entrepreneurs who want to make money, but that also want to create social and environmental abundance.  

The site includes in-depth guides and strategies on how to start a business, marketing effectively and ethically, creating new habits and more.

Specifically you’ll find how to find profitable business ideas, how to quickly validate these ideas with no upfront investment, or how to take your idea to scale. I’ve failed, succeeded and helped others succeed, and this blog gathers the stories and ideas that have helped through my path.

Who am I?

Hey there, I am Jaime Arredondo, and I’m trying to help businesses improve their performance to create prosperity for themselves and for the world in an open, collaborative and circular way.

I work with traditional companies and help them improve their individual and collective work, and share these practices to develop better regenerative projects and practices, so we can live in a regenerative world sooner than later.

Why listen to me?  

I’ve helped increase the performance of startups, solo-preneurs, and companies, as well as advised and been part of some of the most influential open organisations:

  • Danish Design Center: I have been part of the co-creation of the framework used to help small and big Danish Companies transform their Business Models thanks to Open Source.
  • Ouishare: An organisation that builds and nurtures a collaborative society by connecting people, organizations and ideas around fairness, openness and trust.
  • Ideas For Change: Design of intellectual frameworks to help organizations scale their value developing a broader and collaborative mindset.
  • Open Source Circular Economy: Was part of the board of stewards of the OSCE days. I was part of the partner strategy, building relationships with other organizations.
  • Repair Café Nice: I co-founded the Repair Café chapter in Nice. It still runs today with great success.
  • Helped 50+ Organisations: I’ve helped startups, SMEs, freelancers and decentralized and circular organisations to work smarter, not harder by improving their individual and collective performance.

Some nice things people have said about working with me:

Ideas For Change: “I would definitely recommend Jaime’s service, the ratio result to time spent is tremendous.”

Upcyclick: “Jaime helped us improve the management of our tasks (in my case as CEO) by notably improving the quality of individual and team work. It increased our teamwork efficiency by 60%.”

Jesús Luna Drums: “At the moment, I have managed to start a project that would not have started otherwise, which is no small achievement. I’ve made 5 videos in just over a month! Besides, I notice that I am improving in different aspects and being a little more efficient…  I am delighted!  I am becoming more and more determined, I am taking on inertia, and I have more confidence than ever in my project.”
