What inspired our name, "Jerne"?
FOUNDED 1 MARCH 2021
We love innovators! Dr. Jerne was a 1984 Nobel prize-winning immunologist whose most significant theory, his “network theory”, changed the world's understanding of how antibodies trigger ever-greater numbers of antibodies. Essentially, influence within the human body to effect positive change.
Journey is movement and our community is all about influencing positive movement, whether physical or emotional, inspiring change based on shared experiences and the sharing of experiences. (Besides, who doesn't love a good pun?!)
We follow Danish design principles, not just in our belief in simplicity, functionality, and elegance – an overall “less is more” approach – but in our support of sustainability. Jerne, the Danish town, is part of a waterside region whose ports are crucial to the movement of sustainable energy products.
