Our Founder

scott lindsayScott Lindsay is the founder of Wheelchair Heroes. He has over 30 years of experience as a business owner and entrepreneur.  For the last 19 years he has been building websites and online communities where people can  come to find help. Whether it be business, money, or health related issues, Scott has built communities to answer those needs.

Scott has three children. Scott’s youngest child Matthew was born with Down Syndrome and other disabilities. Even though his son Matthew has these disabilities, it has not stopped him from becoming an amazing man.

Over the years Scott has met many many people who use wheelchairs but still have a great outlook on life. Says Scott, “These people have very difficult challenges but learn to live life to the fullest. I call these people ‘Wheelchair Heroes’ because although they have daily struggles, they push forward to live rich, incredible lives“.

This was the catalyst and driving force that caused Scott to start the “Wheelchair Heroes” site.
