Scott was a value-added investor and board member. He was heavily engaged with product strategy, financing, exploring possible business models, customer acquisition - basically all the functions of building a business. As an early stage company, Scott really balanced product emphasis while looking out for where the business could go. It was refreshing to find a board member really using the product and working tirelessly to ensure he was a team member just like us. If I had the opportunity, I would have Scott involved in any company I start.
Scott was a board member at Savored during the time I was there. Scott was great for the company. He very effectively managed the line between being an active board member vs being a meddler. Scott allowed us to run our business while lending his strong operational skills and knowledge when needed. Unlike other startups I've been a part of, Scott's input and influence was welcome amongst the management team. Whether it was pricing structures or business model challenges he always brought good perspective and challenged us to think bigger. Ultimately Scott was instrumental in helping the company through its very early stage to a successful exit in 2012. I highly recommend Scott as an investor or an operator to any business looking to accelerate growth and execute their vision.
I got to know Scott when I was raising money for Producteev. He was a big believer, and we quickly started to work together on a regular basis. He helped me in so many ways... I can't even recall all of them, but just to name a few : subscription and pricing strategy, business model, SAAS acquisition funnels, fundraising, M&A... He was there during good and bad times, simply available ALL THE TIME for me. He was also very insightful in everything product and marketing related, and led me to make some important decisions for the business that worked out well.
I can't recommend Scott's skills enough, one of a kind..
Scott is a smart, independent thinker. I had the pleasure of working with him for several years at Thomas Weisel Partners where we covered media and Internet companies in equity research. He worked extremely hard, was a positive force on the team and had very high standards. I recommend him highly.
Scott is extremely insightful and passionate about the media/technology space. He has a great work ethic and is always willing to help others. He is someone who will challenge an idea in order to make sure the outcome of any situation is the best outcome possible. Having worked with him for several years at Thomas Weisel Partners, I can say he is a pleasure to work with and someone I would want to work with again in the future.
Scott is a valuable confidant. He has the rare gift of vision for the important facets of a business - financial, technical, cultural and contextual fit in the world, both a company's existing value and its potential. He's a quick study, a voracious consumer of all that's happening in 'new media' and a thoughtful adviser. He's also a fun guy to be around. He'd be an asset to any company.
Diligent, practical, hard-working, strategic, enthusiastic and passionate. These are just a few descriptors for Scott as one of our Board Members for HootSuite. Scott worked week-ends checking financial assumptions, pushed tirelessly for change and argued for model adjustments. When I want to get facts based answers, I can rely on Scott. Super pleased to have his association and assistance!
As the lead investor in HootSuite, Scott saw opportunity the emerging Social Media market and the opportunity that our company had. He has been a tireless advocate, amazingly dedicated board member and strategic consigliere. I point him out as a template of what a great investor should aspire to be and would highly recommend him to other entrepreneurs looking for someone that understands bringing a product to market.
Scott Wolfgang has served as my fellow Director on the HootSuite BOD. In addition we have evaluated a number of potential co-investments together, and he serves as our "gateway" into the Hearst Corporation. Scott is a great partner. He is smart, wise, prepared, timely and efficient. He says what he'll do and does what he says - and more so. He is a great Director who adds value through getting to know the company deeply and then helping out where needed. I would like to work again with Scott on another company board soon. He is a savvy investor and a very nice guy.
Scott and I have worked very closely for the last few years as co-lead and seed investors in HootSuite. Scott is a great partner I would gladly work with, co-invest with and has been the Board lead for Hearst. He has integrity, terrific work ethic and is a value added partner and an all around fun guy.
