Scott Kaufman, Cofounder; PeerAspect
Scott is the Co-founder of PeerAspect, a software and services company simplifies the process of collecting supply chain data. PeerAspect does this with a combination of technology and people - software to make the process efficient and transparent, and services to fill in the gaps that the technology can't quite address. Most of our work is in various kinds of compliance data collection and management, but we are the best solution for anyone that needs to get or share data in a fun, easy, efficient, and collaborative way.
Prior to founding PeerAspect, Scott was the US Head of Advisory Services at the Carbon Trust, where he helped to lead supply chain carbon strategy and reduction work with manufacturers and retailers. Scott has a Ph.D. in Environmental Engineering from Columbia University, focusing on LCA in municipal solid waste management. Before that, Scott had several years of management experience in the environmental industry, working with the Columbia Earth Institute, PepsiCo International, RecycleBank and the New York City Department of Sanitation.
Scott was also recently featured in Slate's “Points of Courage” podcast about the challenges of being an entrepreneur after receiving a diagnosis of Parkinson's disease. He lives in Baltimore.
