Following a serial software startup career, including as CEO of Novas Software, which had a successful exit in 2008, Scott joined OVF as an investor in 2010 and as a member of the team in 2012. Scott manages the fund’s investment selection, diligence, and deal structuring. He believes that OVF is perfectly positioned to help build wealth for everyone involved—however, they define it. He thanks the George Meyer, the infamous Simpsons writer, for his mantra “Show up. Work hard. Be kind. Take the high road.”
