8 | The Case for St. Paul and Balance With Scott Burns
On Episode 8 Kevin McArdle, owner of SureSwift Capital and Jac Stark, community manager of Tech.MN welcome Scott Burns, founder of Structural, on The Tech.MN Podcast to talk about ghosting and how more is not always better.
Scott talks about how he came exited his first company, GovDelivery (Now Granicus), not once, but twice. He makes a solid case for St. Paul as a tech hub and how he is contributing to its success with the purchase and launch of Osborne 370.
We chat about his latest venture, Structural, and the benefits of making more focused connections within a company. Conversation gets real when Kevin asks the question, “What does the #MNTech community suck at?” Scott follows it up by getting sentimental about finding balance as a dad and an entrepreneur.
Every episode we ask our guest to name drop someone doing cool things in the tech community. Scott gives a shout out to American Public Media for investing in entrepreneurship in all industries.
