Hello! I’m Ryan Grant Little, and I’m here to help impact and climate professionals succeed. I’m from Toronto, live in Vienna, and work all over the world.
I'm a serial founder and creator, so I know how to grow things from an idea on a napkin to a full-scale impact machine. I’ve done it lots of times.
As a teenager, I co-founded the non-profit donation platform CanadaHelps.org, which has facilitated more than $2 Billion of charitable donations so far. In my 20s, I founded, built, and exited one of North America’s most influential renewable energy companies. Now, for more than a decade, I’ve worked with impact entrepreneurs, corporations, foundations, and investors to use money and great minds to solve the problems that really matter. On top of that, I put my money where my mouth is, as an angel investor with a portfolio of 20+ active impact investments.
Here's some of the stuff I do:
I bring the experience founders and executives need to build robust strategies, business models, and approaches to funding. From rebuilding SaaS companies to developing multi-million-dollar investment strategies, I’ve done it all.
Let me know what challenges you're facing and I'll tell you how I can help.
I am a five-time founder. I started the working group that became SEND e.V., Germany’s national social enterprise organization. I’m the founder and facilitator of Vienna’s foodtech cluster, FoodHack Vienna. I have a podcast for and about impact fund managers. Check out the podcast!
Bottom line: I create the companies and ecosystems that make impact possible.
From university podcasts, like at Oxford University, to conferences with thousands of attendees, like at the International Forum of the Americas, I give candid talks on topics ranging from impact investing and investment readiness to startup life and how to get funded.
