Meet the Topl Team

We are a diverse group of professionals who share a passion for technology, unconventional thinking, and positive impact.

About us

James, Kim and I met in a statistics class at Rice University. Our shared interest in socio-economic problems, computational analysis, and technology led to our first discussions, but our shared passion for challenging the status quo to make the world better made us a team. In 2017, we formally established Topl, and haven't looked back since.

Chris Georgen - Chief Architect

Not your Typical Tech Company

Since that statistics class, the Topl team has grown from three to over twenty. We are dynamic, multicultural, and interdisciplinary, with a range of experiences and perspectives. Our diverse team allows us the ability to creatively solve problems and ensure the best application of Topl’s solution across boundaries, borders, and markets. Each member of the team lives our core values, and shares the common desire to use technology to connect and improve the world.
