From Aiken to IPO, the 20 Year Journey of a Serial Entrepreneur

Abstract: Scot will discuss his experience growing up as pretty much the only computer nerd in a small South Carolina town where he had a crazy dream to take a company public someday. Along the way he started three companies and his path took him through the NCSU community. Scot will share his relatively simple playbook for success that he developed through that journey.
