Ryan Scott is an entrepreneur and technologist with a passion for leveraging capitalism to create positive social change. 

As the co-founder of NetCreations, Ryan is widely considered the father of opt-in email marketing, setting most of the standards in use today and paving the way for laws banning unsolicited commercial email. After he and his partner took the company public and sold it in 2001, Ryan founded community impact firm Causecast to bring sophisticated technology to volunteer and giving programs.  Causecast's Community Impact Platform helps organizations create measurable social change through a free online platform for volunteering, donation, matching, rewarding, and cause campaigns ranging from recycling to disaster relief. The all-inclusive tool is available to organizations of any size - from corporations and schools to nonprofits and online communities.  

With a particular concern for environmental degradation and social injustice, Ryan currently holds investments in numerous information technology and environmental service companies that address these issues, including Signum Biosciences, Sierra Nevada Solar, Cool Earth Solar, T1ME, Mahalo, and Tesla Motors.  Ryan's commitment to community engagement around social change led him to form the Impact and Education sections of the Huffington Post with Arianna Huffington.
