A former CEO of three successful tech startup companies and principal at consulting firm Future Point of View, Scott specializes in seeing beyond the horizon of how technology is changing the world.
Scott began his career hitting the ground fresh out of high school, where his job as a delivery boy was a springboard into the world of technology. He became division head of a computer sales division and then purchased it as his own company. It was eventually built into a twelve-store operation in three states.
His next endeavor was as founder and CEO of Paragraph, Inc., a Soviet/American joint venture founded in 1988, despite international tensions. Half of the company was sold to Silicon Graphics, and the other half is still expanding today (Parascript, Inc.). Scott then collaborated with H.R. Haldeman to publish a diary of his years as an aide to President Nixon, which was a bestseller (Putnam Publishing) and he worked with Sony Interactive in the release of a book companion CD-ROM.
He was founder and CEO of webcasts.com, an early producer of webcasted media ranging from corporate and government communications to sporting events and entertainment. He sold webcasts.com in 1999 for $115 million. His expertise in leadership and his creative approach to business direction inspired Critical Technologies to hire him as a turnaround CEO, where he completely rebuilt the underlying products and brought the company to profitability.
Currently Scott is developing Crowdscribed, a new publishing model for a range of publication types generated by crowdsourcing. Created by the crowd and for the crowd, this new model of publishing reverses the process of traditional publishing and produces titles that will guarantee readers—and revenue.
He is also the founder and part owner of Alkami Technology, a previous tech startup that developed a 2nd generation online banking platform with innovative features non-existent in current systems. The privately-owned software company focuses on providing online account management solutions to the financial services industry.
Scott Klososky is a thought leader that specializes in helping leaders see the world in new ways. He has used innovation, velocity, and future vision to build his own companies, and to advise clients. He speaks to audiences across the market spectrum and never fails to send them home with at least 3 new ideas that they can apply right away. Scott is one of very few people that can translate where technology and trends are going with such flair. It is also rare to find someone that has his combination of both “over the horizon” vision, and “in the trenches” experience. He is not about informing, he is about transforming…
Scott has been growing technology companies for more than 20 years. He helps his clients win in the market by helping them to better see the future, reorganizing the way they implement technology as a tool. He then goes further by helping people understand how the cultural changes driven by the new generation of employees hitting the market can be an asset instead of an anchor.
