Our Story

Jinfo was founded in 1997 by an information scientist with a business information background.

Jinfo was originally called "FreePint", because it was a free email newsletter for People Interested in Net Technologies. Hence the name "FreePint".

The offer of a 'free pint' proved a popular name, with rapid growth in circulation of the newsletter.

With research at its heart, FreePint developed a wider remit to look at information strategy and the re-invention of information services through the sharing of best practice.

Due to a focus on strategy, "FreePint" changed its name in 2016 to "Jinfo".

The Jinfo team has grown into a large network of information professionals globally.
