Scott is best known for co-founding one of Britain’s largest e-commerce businesses Kiddicare.com and creating the monetisation platform Elevaate.com which were both acquired for north of $150m.
After the Kiddicare acquisition, Scott became Managing Director of Morrisons.com and Chief Digital Architect of the entire Morrisons Plc group.
In 2013, Scott created the Haatch Angel fund with Elle, his wife and Fred Soneya and used his personal wealth to back digital entrepreneurs in both the U.S and UK markets, seeing a return of 276x from one of his initial investments.
