About Scot

Serial entrepreneur with experience across seven startup ventures, including four exits. Functionally, I've been focused on driving business development, sales and business strategy forward. Domain expertise across media/digital media (Current TV, Sony/Crackle), marketplaces (StyleSeat), SaaS (Livefyre) and iOT (Reviver). I also spent almost five years earlier in my career as an M&A investment banker.
