It was instilled in Grant early in his life that success should be measured by his contribution, not through what he accumulates. The Susan McKinnon Foundation is Grant’s vehicle for making a difference. Through the Foundation, Grant aspires to contribute to a better functioning society and economy. After nearly two decades working in technology, Grant now focuses much of his time and entrepreneurial flair on the work of the Susan McKinnon Foundation.
