Ryan Martens founded Rally Software 10 years ago with the goal of being one of the first for-profit software companies to break the take-make-waste cycle of technology in our society. Today, he stands on the precipice of a major breakthrough toward that goal by launching a foundation that will bring together and fund citizen engineers to help solve some of our world's toughest challenges. Ryan is a founding board member and CEO of the Entrepreneurs Foundation of Colorado, which brings together local venture capitalists and start-ups to set aside 1 percent of their profits to charity and is likely to release $2 million to endow Colorado within a 5-year span. Ryan is a mentor at the Unreasonable Institute and Boulder TechStars and a member of the engineering entrepreneurship efforts at the University of Colorado atBoulder. Ryan integrates work, life and sustainability on his farm, raising horses, dogs, chickens, goats, burros, bees, worms and canaries.
