Jeff Scott’s Bio:
For Jeff Scott, “embracing life” is not just a lofty ideal; it is his way of life. Jeff has been building innovative tech startups in Orange County since 1995. Software Anywhere, Scott’s mission-driven for-profit software company is proving that companies can incorporate extreme philanthropy, while still achieving their for-profit goals. Scott leads the company as the CEO and lead technical architect developing applications on the Salesforce.com platform.
Inspired by the Salesforce Foundation, Scott and his team spend over 33% of their time working on community projects. Software Anywhere has also launched a cutting-edge high school technology internship program that extends to a full college scholarship for students who stay on full-time. December 2016 marks the 10-year anniversary of giving and by the end of July his team of 10 full-time employees will have achieved their most significant milestone yet — providing over $10,000,000 of sustainable community impact since the program started in 2007.
While working hard, Jeff’s “embracing life” mantra also drives him to play hard. He is an accomplished musician and sailing fanatic. With his strong commitment to family, Jeff considers his role as devoted husband and father of three the most rewarding of all.
