What we're about

NJ's largest technology community.

The NJ Tech Meetup is a monthly meeting of 150+ entrepreneurs and innovators.

In seven years, with the help of more than 400,000 donors worldwide, charity: water has raised more than $125 million and funded 10,000 water projects in 20 countries. When completed, those projects will provide clean, safe drinking water to more than 3.5 million people. Scott was recently recognized on Fortune Magazine's 40 under 40 list, the Forbes Magazine Impact 30 list and was recently #10 in Fast Company's 100 Most Creative People in Business issue. He is currently a World Economic Forum Young Global Leader. Scott spent almost 10 years as a nightclub promoter in New York City before leaving to volunteer on a hospital ship off the coast of Liberia, West Africa, as a photojournalist. In a 2013 Forbes article, Scott said, "One year turned into two, and while I was there, I saw people drinking dirty water from ponds, rivers and swamps--simply born into communities without access. It shocked and angered me, and I began learning more about the world's 800 million people living without access to clean water. I returned to NYC to help them, and started charity: water." Returning home to New York City two years later, he founded the nonprofit organization charity: water in 2006. Turning his full attention to the global water crisis and the world's 800 million people without access to clean water, he created public installations and innovative online fundraising platforms to spread international awareness of the issue.
