Jason Fried Biography – Jason Fried Wiki
Jason Fried is the cofounder and CEO of Basecamp (formerly 37signals), a Chicago-based software firm that builds web-based productivity tools. He launched 37Signals in 1999 with Ernest Kim and Carlos Segura. The company started as a Web design firm. In 2003, Fried hired David Heinemeier Hansson, a Danish programmer, to write software to keep the company’s design projects organized. Soon, software development eclipsed design in both revenue and focus. On February 5th, 2004, Basecamp was born.
Fried is the co-author, with David Heinemeier Hansson, of the book “Rework,” about new ways to conceptualize working and creating. Salon’s Scott Rosenberg called it “a minimalist manifesto that’s profoundly practical. In a world where we all keep getting asked to do more with less, the authors show us how to do less and create more.”
Since 2010, Fried has contributed a monthly column to Inc. Magazine called “Getting Real.” He graduated in 1996 with a bachelor’s of science degree in finance from the University of Arizona.
