I prefer to roll up my sleeves and make an impact on the growth trajectory of a company - not just provide capital. I'll help a CEO grow into the role or fill in temporarily for strategy and BD. If a company needs VC funding, I bring those relationships.
Scott has been an integral part of the SafeHostel team. He brings tons of experience to the table in building a business strategy, as well as in helping decide when the time is right to pivot away from that plan.
In sum, Scott is not 'just an investor'; he is ready and willing to jump into anything he can help with, including some day to day startup activities (which is very rare in investors!). That makes a huge difference when you are resource strapped and trying to conquer the world (like most startups). I highly recommend Scott and would encourage anyone launching a startup in working with him.
