A design thinker by profession and philanthropist by passion, Pam Scott supports creative people disrupting the social sector and business for good. Trained as a designer, Pam is a creative strategist with a sweet spot for helping start-ups and Fortune 500 companies alike define their mission, offer and brand from a more human-centered perspective. Pam earned her stripes in advertising working on clients like Nike, Porsche and Unilever to name a few. In 2000, she founded The Curious Company where she continued to push her clients to be bigger, bolder and better by being more end-user-focused. Now, as an activist-investor, she concentrates solely on do-good organizations – for-profit (like Method Home) and non-profit (like IDEO.org) – in which she invests. Pam co-directs her family foundation through which she and husband place big bets on a few organizations. Pam and Tim are all-in investors, committing their time, talent and connections to the causes within their portfolio.
Pam frequently speaks about innovation and human-centered design. Recent speaking engagements include The Clinton Global Initiative, The Stanford d School, Harlem Children’s Zone, Young Global Leaders Summit and The Social Innovation Summit.
Passionate about fresh, local, organic food, Pam is also a farmer and volunteer farming educator.
