If you have read Scott Jones’ resume, you know he never stops innovating. Living out the mantra “Whatever it freaking takes,” Scott has been a leader in the tech industry since his twenties. Scott was born in Louisville and moved to Indianapolis with two years left of high school. With the initial desire to be a doctor, Scott then began school at Indiana University. His curiosity about how the world and technology works resulted in six years in Bloomington with plenty of credits, but not enough in one major.
