Scott Harrison is an entrepreneur, philanthropist, and bestselling author on a mission to bring clean drinking water to every person on Earth who needs it.

And he's not just talking about it; he's actually doing it. Scott is the Founder and CEO of charity: water, one of the fastest-growing nonprofits in history with more than 1 million supporters worldwide that raised over $700 million and funded over 111,000 water projects in 29 countries. Scott has provided over 15.5 million people with clean, safe drinking water through his charity.

After a decade of pure indulgence as a nightclub promoter, Scott fell apart physically and emotionally. He spent two years volunteering as a photojournalist on a hospital ship off the coast of Liberia and came back to NYC on a mission to bring clean drinking water to people worldwide.

He details his incredible journey in his bestseller, THIRST: A Story of Redemption, Compassion, and a Mission to Bring Clean Water to the World.

In our conversation, we go over his journey from being attached to materialism to devoting his life to serving others, his innovative business model for scaling nonprofits that other organizations fail to use, and his vision for where charity: water is headed in the future.
