"If you have a vision to change the world, my sidekick Daniel James Scott is here to spark that revolution with you."
Adam West (Batman)
Only four American nonprofit executives have ever received a prestigious International Stevie medallion. Daniel James Scott is one of them.
Only one honored as the U.S. Small Business Administration’s 50th Anniversary State of Florida “Business Advocate of the Year.”
Only one named Tampa Bay Business Journal’s “Up & Comer” an unprecedented four times.
And only one recognized the youngest-ever “Entrepreneurship Educator of the Year” by the Association for Small Business and Entrepreneurship.
Daniel is “one of America’s top CEOs,” according to Huffington Post. One of Florida Trend's “economic impact players.” One of Tampa Bay Times “10 who make Tampa Bay area’s economic outlook brighter.”
And TechCrunch declares his work is “getting Tampa Bay’s name on the map.”
His positive influence in the region is highlighted by the US Small Business Administration as “making a lasting impact on Florida’s economy.”
He is “one of Tampa Bay’s 100 most influential business leaders” according to both the Tampa Bay Business Journal and Tampa Bay CEO Magazine. One of Creative Loafing’s “Best of the Bay.” One of the University of South Florida Entrepreneurship Society’s “Alumnus of the Year.”
And the Tampa Bay Technology Forum celebrated him as their 10th Anniversary “Technology Leader of the Year.”
Yet the St. Pete Catalyst notes that “to call Daniel James Scott an influencer is something of an understatement.” The Business Observer adds that he “has a knack for seeing opportunity in the most unlikely places.” And the Tampa Bay Times touts his commitment to “strengthening this metro region’s still-young business culture.”
Daniel co-founded Florida's first undergraduate entrepreneurship degree program. Florida's first seed-stage accelerator fund. Florida's first all-digital audio technology company. Florida’s first Emerging Tech Leaders group. Florida’s first in-house corporate recruiters’ organization.
And most recently, he led the strategic turnarounds of two prominent Florida nonprofits. Simultaneously.
Daniel holds two master’s degrees. He's co-authored five books, is thanked or featured in another half-dozen, with his academic articles cited in two more. He serves on the board for one of Florida’s fastest-growing companies. He contributes a weekly technology segment to iHeartRadio, distributed globally.
And he is a father to twins and husband to an incredible wife and mother.
