Taylor Quinn is a speaker, mentor, activist, volunteer, and social entrepreneur who lives for community change. His work includes founding CompCamp, a technology education-based social enterprise that changed the way kids learned tech. Taylor is as comfortable giving a TEDx Talk as he is mentoring a young entrepreneur, experiences that lead to being named a “Shining Star” at a Royal Reception with Prince William, Princess Katherine, and Prime Minister Harper. He has consulted internationally with non-profits, represented Canada at an UN-sponsored global entrepreneurship program, and received the Queen’s Diamond Jubilee Medal for his commitment to community development in Canada. His current work centers around bridging the worlds of grassroots activists and high-level politicians – reimagining what democracy means in the 21st century.
