About Jan

Jan Leyssens is a designer and entrepreneur who strongly believes you can’t turn sustainability into a positive story if your main focus is on negative impact. When designing, he is always looking for the overlap between activism and entrepreneurship, technology and community.

His main expertise lies in strategic business model development, Circular Economy, the makermovement, and social innovation.
With a background in Industrial Design, Jan quickly shifted his focus towards business design and using the design process in strategic management.

Jan is the founder and CEO of Regenerative Design, co-founder of switchrs, podcaster, storyteller, and changemaker.
