Bio: Scott E. Jordan is the co-founder and CEO of SCOTTEVEST, Inc. and its licensing subsidiary TEC-Technology Enabled Clothing, Inc. As CEO of SCOTTEVEST, Scott is involved in every aspect of the business, from engineering the perfect pocket to maintaining media relationships to the “big picture” stuff, like determining the future of the company. He started SCOTTEVEST in 2000 with his wife Laura, and has built the business from a start-up run from his guest bedroom into one of Inc.com’s fastest growing companies.

Scott is no stranger to media attention. He appeared on Season Three of ABC’s Shark Tank in March 2012. He has received a multitude of press in the past for his successful entrepreneurship, including write-ups in Entrepreneur magazine, The Wall Street Journal, and even several college textbooks. Before founding SCOTTEVEST, Scott practiced corporate law at DLA Piper in Chicago and acted as Vice President and General Counsel at a Next50.com, an internet start-up. He received his J.D. from Case Western Reserve University (summa cum laude and Order of the Coif) and his B.A. in Business Administration (with a focus on entrepreneurship…before it was trendy) from Ohio State University. His favorite hobbies include skiing, amateur auto racing, yoga, and hiking with his wife Laura and their four standard poodles: Lucy, Chloe, Margaux, and Susie.
