Pete Cashmore

Pete Cashmore, 26, is a leading light of the connected generation. Mashable, born out of his bedroom in Scotland when he was 19, is a must read for people seeking to know what's next in the digital world. Pete is fiercely intelligent and a tireless supporter of using social and digital platforms for good. On his 23rd birthday, he used social-media sites to raise money to build freshwater wells in Africa. His team then launched the Social Good Summit, an annual conference dedicated to making a better world through social media. Pete started Mashable because he wanted to be part of the conversation about technological change. Mashable gave him a voice. Today, it gives voice to millions who are trying to make their lives better through digital innovation.
