Bradley Harrison, Founder, Scout Ventures
That’s sir, to you. No, he hasn’t been knighted, although he is arguably an absolute prince among investors. Before beginning his career in venture capitalism, the founder and managing partner of BHV (now Scout Ventures) was a cadet at the United States Military Academy at West Point (1990-1994), graduating in the top 1% of his class with a B.S.E. in Quantitative Economics and a concentration in Systems Engineering, and a Distinguished Honor Graduate award. He then went on to serve in the United States Army for 5 years, beginning his military career as a second lieutenant and retiring as a captain, while earning both Airborne and Ranger qualifications.
An MIT grad, Harrison holds an MBA from Sloan and is also an active participant in the Columbia Business School’s Greenhouse Program and has served as an executive mentor for the school’s Launching New Ventures course with Brendan Burns. But you don’t have to be an MBA candidate to catch his ear or a few minutes of his time. And that’s just one of the reasons why we’re saluting him here for being awesome in New York!
