Esther Dyson is executive founder of [HICCup](http://www.hiccup.co/) and its project WaytoWellville and chairman of [EDventure Holdings](http://www.edventure.com/).

She is an active board member for a variety of companies, including 23andMe, Luxoft, Meetup, Pressreader, Voxiva, XCOR Aerospace and Yandex.

She also sits on the boards of several nonprofit organizations, including ExpandED Learning, Long Now Foundation, the Sunlight Foundation and the Personal Genome Foundation.
