Tom Rand Biography

Tom Rand is a global leader with a recognized record of extraordinary achievement in the promotion of a low carbon economy. A green entrepreneur, investor, advisor, public speaker, and author, Rand’s ambition is to help bring clean technology to life.

One of the most creative and courageous public speakers in North America, Rand challenges his audiences to recognize that there are concrete solutions to the climate change crisis. Despite enormous skepticism from political and business leaders, he remains undaunted by those who insist that climate change is not real or can’t be mitigated. He is widely sought after for his ability to take enormously complicated issues and reformulate them in ways that engage his listeners, speaking as a scientifically literate entrepreneur and investor. He has delivered keynote addresses at universities, energy conferences, corporate engagements, and public events.

Offering a perspective that is both pragmatic and optimistic, Rand’s bare-knuckled approach is refreshingly straightforward, while balancing the economic, political, scientific and technological sides of this important topic.

Currently Rand is Managing Partner of the newly established privately backed MaRS Cleantech Fund. Rand also serves as Senior Advisor, Cleantech to the MaRS Discovery District. As well, Rand is founder and director of VCi Green Funds, a seed and venture capital fund in the lowcarbon sector; is co-developer of Planet Traveler, the "greenest hotel in North America"; and sits on the Board of Directors of a number of cleantech companies and NGO's.

A published author, Rand’s Kick the Fossil Fuel Habit: 10 Clean Technologies to Save Our World is a richly illustrated and accessible book that addresses the most important subjects of our time: solar, wind, geothermal, biofuels, hydropower, ocean, smart buildings, transportation, efficiency and conservation and the energy internet. Numerous published articles have appeared in The Globe and Mail, Canadian Business Magazine, Clean Energy North America, and The Mark News, to name a few.

A proven and successful entrepreneur, Rand founded Voice Courier Inc. (VCi) in 1991 to service the emerging Interactive Voice Response market. Under Rand’s direction, VCi expanded to over 100 employees in three countries, with revenue in excess of $20 million US annually. The VCi Group of Companies was profitable for each of the twelve years it was under his control, and was sold in 2005.

Rand holds a BASc in Electrical Engineering from the University of Waterloo, a MSc in Philosophy of Science from the University of London / London School of Economics and an MA and PhD in Philosophy from the University of Toronto. In 2008 Rand was awarded an Action Canada Fellowship, and was project manager of the influential Green Bonds public policy team.
