13 - Scott Friesen
June 21, 2021
Scott is the CEO and Co-Founder of Verdant Frontiers, an Austin based investment firm with a mission to deliver life changing jobs in Africa and compelling returns for its investors.
Scott has been an entrepreneur for as long as he can remember. After a successful career starting and selling a number of different ventures, Scott considered retirement. However, a trip to Africa stopped him in his tracks. After this trip, he found a resolve to invest in Africa and its people. So, Verdant was launched to create jobs and in doing so, change lives, and to capitalize on the economic potential of Africa that Scott and his team believed in.
Scott and I talk about daily courage, how to overcome challenges both big and small, and how to go for it with the right motivations. Enjoy!
