Scott Nelson


I am a serial tech entrepreneur. I started one of Canada’s first web companies in 1993 and have been an active part of Vancouver’s high tech community since that time, particularly utilizing and promoting open source tools and methodology.

I recently co-founded and am CTO for the crowdfunding platform, as well as being an angel investor and advisor in the burgeoning field of digital currency.

My board experience includes VeloFemmes Canada, the Vancouver Community Net, Free Geek Vancouver, the BC Council for International Cooperation and the Society Promoting Environmental Conservation.
