Coaching and Mentoring for Startup Founders
Founders Need Good Mentors In Their Corner
To get to the next level, startups may not need to make major changes—they might just need some good mentoring.
Early-stage startups may not need to completely abandon their current operation for a full-scale pivot—they just may need some good mentoring.
Late-stage startups may not need to hire a ton of senior-level specialists to do things differently—their current employees may be able to grow into it with some good mentoring.
As a marketing and analytics mentor with 1871—America’s number one private business incubator—I’ve coached 50+ startup founders and helped them to gain more traction.

“It’s rare to find a mentor who is so passionate and wise about start-ups. But Scott focuses on the mission, the process and the possibilities. Not all start-ups make it and much of being an entrepreneur is messy and chaotic, but Humm Productions is an agile, profitable, busy company due in large part to his awesome coaching.”
Producer of the Impactually Podcast
Brooke is an amazing achiever and has taught me more about professional networking than I’ve taught her about marketing. She’s a documentarian who specializes in telling the stories of people who make a positive social impact in their communities.
Her team’s in-house project centers on their Impactually podcast, which helps elevate and amplify the stories of individual difference-makers, but her business works with socially conscious brands to creatively tell their stories. It’s a thrill to be able to support her work.
His team has done several programs with me, including my marketing messaging program where we break down and discuss the psychological impact of certain video ads. Tim is a smart, driven entrepreneur who is a master of A/B testing and optimization. He and his team have earned every ounce of their success.
Co-Founder and CEO
I feel like I’ve gotten more from Ali than she has from me. She’s not only a collaborator but a de facto accountability partner, never letting me get away with halfhearted follow-through on my big goals. She and her team work tirelessly to improve her offering and help people when they need it most.

Inspire by Tyler
Tyler has more demand than she knows what to do with, and she’s now building her studio into a thriving art business. Tyler is an exceptionally gifted artist and businesswoman, and I can’t wait to see her artwork take off.
The best marketing mentor session I've ever had
Scott is experienced, thoughtful and provided actionable ways to improve my company – best hour I’ve spent in months!
Analytics and Marketing
We still have a little ways to go before analytics pays a part, but Scott still provided amazing feedback on our overall business idea. While I have only met with a handful of mentors, Scott was the first to make it clear he would be following back up with us. I think most members at 1871 would benefit meeting with Scott.
Mentor helped develop what I need to do next
Mentor was through and first took the time to understand my business’s requirements and then went over a plan that would help me to benefit.
