Scot is the CEO & Co-Founder of Classy, a social enterprise that creates world-class online fundraising tools for nonprofits, modernizing the giving experience to accelerate global social impact. When one of the largest cancer organizations refused to accept the money he raised during a pub crawl held to honor his mom, a two-time breast cancer survivor, Scot was inspired to start Classy to make it easier for anyone to support a cause that’s meaningful to them—and just as easy for organizations to make purposeful and lasting connections with their supporters. Since 2011, fundraising on the Classy platform has doubled each year—resulting in thousands of nonprofits collectively raising over half a billion dollars. Classy partners with organizations of all sizes, from the fastest-growing nonprofits such as Team Rubicon and Malala Fund, to some of the world’s largest social organizations, such as Acumen Fund, Oxfam, and Shriners Hospitals for Children. Based in San Diego, CA, Classy has raised $53 million to-date in growth capital and is backed by prominent technology investors including JMI Equity, Mithril, Salesforce Ventures, and Bullpen Capital. Classy was selected by Fast Company as one of ''The World's Most Innovative Companies in Social Good,'' and recognized on the ''100 Brilliant Companies'' list by Entrepreneur Magazine. Most recently, Scot was recognized by Glassdoor as a Highest Rated CEO in 2017. Outside of Classy, Scot is an active advisor and angel investor, investing out of a fund called Mixture that includes investments in Change.org, inDinero, Casetext and FanDuel. He’s also part of the founding investor group and on the Board of Directors at San Francisco City Football Club, the country’s first social enterprise semi-professional soccer club. Previously he served for four years on the founding Board of Directors at Team Rubicon, a veteran-led disaster relief nonprofit. Prior to Classy, Scot was a Senior Consultant and Lean Six Sigma Black Belt at Booz Allen Hamilton. Scot earned a B.S in Mechanical & Industrial Engineering from the University of Massachusetts at Amherst.
