He has since worked for five more technology ventures including Poqet Computer and ICE in addition to world-renowned research and development organizations such as Bellcore and IBM. His broad expertise in technology spans the industry from manufacturing to software development to chip design. Scott actively maintains his technical expertise as the creator of Oh Don't Forget!, a popular mobile app for Android and iOS devices. He completed the prestigious Kauffman Fellows Program and later joined Gabriel Venture Partners in early 2000 where he has focused on research labs for fundamental innovations. Scott's first investment at Gabriel was in the seed round of NextG Networks which eventually sold to Crown Castle for $1 billion. He went on to co-found innovative funds such as the Employee Stock Option Fund and Michigan eLab.
