CEL was created in 2008 by Ian Inaba, James Rucker, and Daniel Souweine as a home for social entrepreneurs like themselves and a launching pad for new ideas and people powered projects that seek to change the world by leveraging the power of the internet. Since then, CEL has worked with dozens of startups, entrepreneurs, and philanthropic partners to expand the impact and reach of people powered change.

Our team is a bright, dedicated, and diverse group of leaders in their own respective fields. They do the heavy lifting to make sure CEL and its partners run fast and strong. Meet the Team.
