Scion Motivate Winner Profiles – Icaru5 and Roaming Republic

We’re continuing our coverage of the Scion Motivate program with a look at two more of the 10 young entrepreneurs who won career mentoring, $10,000, and a new Scion car. William T. of Icaru5 is a documentarian from Chicago who has used the medium of film to give voice to non-profit organizations. Conversely, Baltimore based Reed G. uses her Roaming Republic boutique as a storefront for import accessories that support sustainability and Fair Trade values.


William T. – Icaru5

William is a 23 year old documentary filmmaker from Chicago, Illinois. He attended the University of Notre Dame where he studied economics and film.  Upon graduating in 2012, William took a position in data analytics consulting.  For the past year, however, he has actively pursued opportunities that combine his two passions: filmmaking and humanitarian outreach.  Consequently, William started Icaru5, a documentary production company that gives nonprofits a narrative and tax dollars context.
