Co-founder and CEO, Scout Canning
Adam Bent is Scout's CEO and leads the team to operationalize Scout's mission: to become the most trusted seafood brand in North America while reducing food waste and protecting our oceans. He is also a founding member of the Seafood Collab, an industry group of emerging seafood CPG brands whose leaders are committed to a regenerative ocean food system and increased consumer engagement in sustainable seafood.
Previously, Bent was a technology entrepreneur building VC-backed businesses as the co-founder of thisopenspace and Uppercase. His passion in food isn't a new journey, as he was the former VP at Provender, a TechStars-backed, online marketplace that addressed inefficiencies in local food delivery to wholesalers. He also was the Canadian manager for Urbanspoon before its acquisition and is a partner at Prairie Boy Organic Bakery in Toronto, Canada.
