Fighting Crime With Code: A Q&A With Scott Crouch, CEO Of Mark43

Scott Crouch is the 22-year-old co-founder and CEO of Mark43, a startup that helps law enforcement agencies fight crime more strategically with code. Join Fast Company's Chuck Salter for a live chat with Crouch on Tuesday, December 10th at noon (ET).

Mark Zuckerberg isn’t the only brainiac to turn a Harvard project into a hot startup. Earlier this year, 22-year-old Scott Crouch and a couple of his classmates started Mark43, which makes powerful new software for a growing number of police departments. The technology, which grew out of an engineering design class, helps law enforcement do sophisticated data analysis, such as mapping the hierarchy of gang members to make more targeted arrests and giving officers on the street critical information about dangerous suspects.  

Earlier this year, Crouch and co-founder Flo Mayr and Matt Polega won the largest-ever entrepreneurship competition at Harvard. They also raised $2 million from SV Angels and other investors. Unlike Zuckerberg, Crouch and his buddies graduated before running their startup full-time.
