Scott Brady is a founding partner at Innovation Endeavors and a serial entrepreneur. He’s equal parts investor, founder, technologist, leader, teacher, and coach. He cofounded three publicly traded tech companies and is a board member at some of the most ambitious startups in tech.
In his role as an investor, Scott looks to partner with entrepreneurs who are tackling technically difficult challenges that are capital intensive and truly transformative. These companies leverage a proliferation of data and new computation and automation tools to run more experiments; learn and iterate faster, better, and cheaper; and speed up the growth cycle.
Scott has led Innovation Endeavors investments in multiple Stanford GSB-founded companies including: Plenty, which is driving the evolution of the $3-trillion-dollar agriculture industry with indoor, vertical farms powered by machine learning, data science, and automation; Clear Metal, which is leveraging AI and machine learning to clean up disorganized, dirty data in the supply chain, making it easier to predict problems and manage complexity; and Citrine, which uses AI and massive data sets to accelerate materials discovery and product development.
Prior to joining Innovation Endeavors, Scott was CEO of Slice, where he was also a cofounder and board member. Prior to Slice, he was cofounder and CEO of FiberTower, the cofounder and CTO of Clarus Corporation, and the cofounder and CTO of SQLFinancials.
Scott is also a lecturer in management at Stanford Graduate School of Business where he teaches about management and new venture formation. Additionally, he serves on the school’s Advisory Council and is chairman of the advisory board for its MSx Program.
Scott earned his MS in management from Stanford Graduate School of Business, and a BS in finance from the University of Florida with high honors. Scott holds multiple software and technology patents.
