Shane Scranton

Since 2012 I've been embedded in the startup world as a founder, advisor, consultant, or early employee at several early-stage companies. I've focused on product-led growth and the team-building around that work - I love finding simple & delightful design solutions to complex industry problems. Now, as VP of Product at Running Tide, I'm helping establish high-quality, durable carbon removal products to combat climate change, restore planetary health, and safeguard our collective future.

I began my career in architecture, specializing in 3D visualization for clients to help them understand the spatial ramifications of their projects. My love for the built world led me to co-found IrisVR, a B2B SaaS company in NYC that helps engineers, designers, and owners collaborate on their buildings before construction begins to streamline the design and planning process. Autodesk acquired IrisVR's products in 2022.

We managed Iris through its entire life cycle: from idea to fundraising, product creation, monetization, and ultimately the sale of the business. We built a category-defining product that helps the world by accelerating the construction of facilities for vaccine development, renewable energy, manufacturing, healthcare, and more.
