Partner & Chief Storyteller, MobileServe
Ben Reno-Weber is a social entrepreneur whose career has been dedicated to creating opportunities for all people to reach their full potential. He grew up in Kentucky, but a fascination with the nature of leadership, sparked by the YMCA’s civic engagement programs, led him to work and study in Washington DC, the Dominican Republic, Bosnia, Russia, Boston, and New York. He worked with micro-entrepreneurs, government agencies, non-profits, and fortune 100 companies before returning to Kentucky to run the YMCA’s civic engagement programs for middle and high school students.
He is currently the Chief Storyteller for a tech start-up called MobileServe that is focused on building a culture of service in organizations and communities by tracking and communicating social good. He also moonlights as the Project Director of the Greater Louisville Project donor-funded think that is dedicated to using data to catalyze social change. In his free time, he is a competitive eater, currently holding world records in both speed and volume of watermelon consumption (pre-sliced division). He currently serves on the Board of the St. Louis Federal Reserve, GLI’s Enterprise Corps, and the Awesome Foundation.
