Who Are We

Scott D. Cole is a co-founder and director of Founding Futures.
Over his 35 year career, he has owned and sold several technology companies, provided senior leadership for many high tech enterprises as well as management consulting and organizational development services for nonprofit as well as for-profit organizations. His passion for transforming education was ignited first as the director of a K-8 Waldorf school where he was instrumental in guiding a five year growth initiative. Scott later became director/principal of an inner city charter high school, guiding the transition from private to charter, leading it through a particularly challenging time. He is committed to eliminating the education disparity that exists in America, and believes one of the most powerful ways this can be accomplished is through connecting technology services and the many service providers who support families and schools in pursuit of closing the achievement gap.
