FORTUNE FAVORS THE BOLD.
Hi, I’m Scott.
I’m a startup enthusiast, business development consultant, web designer 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.
I arrived in Cape Town, South Africa in early February. I plan to spend about a month here, while doing some consulting work for Woo Commerce. Eventually I will wind my way north to Nairobi, Kenya.
Along the way I will meet and work with as many startups and social enterprises as possible – all the while documenting my experience and highlighting entrepreneurs solving some of the worlds toughest problems.
I’m particularly interested in meeting those utilizing creative business models and adapted technology to deliver life saving, quality-of-life improving products and services to underserved markets. My goal is simply to learn from their unique experiences, and ultimately to provide value in any way that I can.
