FORTUNE FAVORS THE BOLD.
Hi, I’m Scott.
I’m a startup enthusiast, risk taker and adventure junky. I’ve designed and launched hardware and software in both North and South America. My projects have been featured in hundreds of publications, including TechCrunch, VentureBeat and CNET. I ran a crowdfunding campaign that raised over $170k in 30 days and have been accepted to accelerator programs in China and Chile.
After living and working in South America for the last year and a half, I’m on to the next adventure: AFRICA.
Scroll down to learn more about my current focus and past projects.
Details are a bit hazy but I arrive in Cape Town, South Africa with the goal of winding my way north to Nairobi, Kenya over the next 3 months or so.
I plan to meet and work with as many startups and social enterprises as possible in each country – all the while documenting my experience.
I’m not exactly sure what the outcome will be but it’s sure to be interesting.
