Innovators Network

Scott Heiferman - Founder, Meetup.com


Scott Heiferman was named the 2004 M.I.T. Technology Review "Innovator of the Year" for his work as co-founder and CEO of Meetup. Meetup first came to fame as the grassroots backbone of the Howard Dean presidential campaign and has since revolutionized how millions of people use the internet to organize local community groups with real-life meetings. Meetup's investors include eBay, Omidyar Network, DFJ, Esther Dyson, and others. Scott also started Fotolog (a billion-monthly-pageview online photo community) and i-traffic (the first ad agency dedicated to online media). Previously, Scott was "Interactive Marketing Frontiersman" at Sony, where he created Sony's first consumer online presence. In 2005, Scott received the Jane Addams Award from the National Conference on Citizenship. He graduated from The University of Iowa and has posted a photo on his personal Fotolog every day since 2001.
