Scott Harris is an entrepreneur who has created and sold a dozen companies mostly in the technology sector. He sold his most recent business, a information security firm, in 2007 and semi-retired to the Caribbean island of St. Croix at the age of 35. Currently 37 years old, Scott splits his time between investing and playing in the ocean. As an avid sailor, fisherman, and scuba diver, living in the Caribbean provides ample opportunity for fun activities. Business is also a passion for Scott. In 1994, when most people still did not know what the Internet was, he dropped out of college to start the first Internet Provider in San Antonio, Texas. Wildly successful, he sold this company in 1997 and began his career as a serial entrepreneur. His business adventures include owning a day trading company, a domain name registration company, financing a touring magic show (his takeaway on this was: "never give money to someone who makes a living making stuff disappear!"), a full service car wash, and others. He took a internet incubator public through a reverse merger in 2000, and founded a company that provided internet cameras for day care facilities (sold in 2003). His most recent success, SecureTrust Corporation, provided a number of technologies, including digital encryption for websites, network intrusion prevention hardware, and was a VISA/MasterCard certified provider of PCI security compliance auditing for corporations and banking institutions. Some of his achievements including being the first company to offer 256-bit encryption for online transactions, he was a key player in the creation and implementation of Extended Validation (EV or Green Bar) SSL certificates for websites, and his company was the first company in the world to complete the audit and certification process and provide this technology to an end user (only beating VeriSign by a couple of days, but he is quite proud of being the first!). SecureTrust was sold to Trustwave, who is now the largest provider of PCI compliance solutions in the world. Although sailing, tennis, fishing and other outdoor activities take up much of his time these days, Scott is an active investor in the equity markets (generally on the short side) and is actively investigating investments into private companies and even toying with a few new internet and social media business ideas.
