Company History & Values

The company was founded in 2019 as the Nexus Newsletter, while James was working full time at the National Renewable Energy Laboratory. In early 2020, the Nexus Podcast was added on, followed by the Nexus Pro membership and the Nexus Foundations course. Today, the Nexus community is worldwide and still growing.

We're looking to you to help take our impact to the next level. Starting with you, we'll build a team rooted in our core values:

  1. Sustainability: Our driving motivation is to address the climate crisis with innovation. Driving sustainability also means driving sustainable business value for building owners, so we focus heavily on the overall digitization of commercial real estate assets.
  2. Pragmatic Innovation: Nexus is rooted in James' engineering background. We cut through the fluff to what's real. We don't believe in tech for tech's sake—we believe in leveraging technology to solve real problems. That said, the status quo is unacceptable and we believe in driving change. Addressing the climate crisis requires the ambition to completely reimagine and rebuild our built environment. At Nexus, we challenge ourselves—and our partners—to act boldly and innovate quickly.
  3. Continuous Learning: From day one, Nexus has been about sharing ideas, gathering feedback, asking questions, and seeking insights from across the industry. The team will embody that ethos and work to support it in the community. No company has the ability to drive change all by itself. Through our partnerships and community, we’re enabling the collaboration and learning we need.
  4. Diversity: One of our values is to broaden leadership opportunities for women, people of color, LGBTQ+, and anyone with an experience historically underrepresented in our industry. We celebrate diversity and are committed to creating an inclusive, safe, and growth-oriented environment for all members of our team. [That said, we realize we have a long way to go on this front and we expect it to be a major focus for James and the Community & Marketing Manager moving forward.]
  5. Quality: In a time of rapid industry change, there's a ton of extra noise, hype, and fluff. Nexus is a signal in the noise for our community. Everything we do must be worth their precious time and earn their trust to keep coming back and giving back.
