ABOUT THE SPEAKER

Jordan Bober 

Jordan Bober, 30, is a Vancouver-based social entrepreneur who first became fascinated by community currencies and other innovative approaches to economics while studying at the University of Gothenburg, Sweden. A few years later, Jordan met modern community currency pioneer Michael Linton, igniting the desire to start a currency for his own community. The idea for a currency devoted primarily to strengthening the local food economy first occurred to Jordan in 2011. This idea blossomed into what is now Seedstock Community Currency, a Vancouver-based local currency that began circulating in January 2013.
