Picture of Scott

Scott from Minnesota is working to transform Minnesota by ‘connecting people, breaking down silos, and creating new opportunities.’.

Scott Burns is the co-founder of Structural, a platform that connects people to each other and to opportunity, and an alumnus of GovDelivery, which was co-founded in a St. Paul, MN basement in 2000. Structural is backed by venture funds led by industry visionaries, and integrates seamlessly into Microsoft Teams and other collaboration platforms. The team at GovDelivery grew to 250 professionals across four offices in the US and Europe. Their platform has an unrivaled impact on improving the public sector's ability to communicate, and is used by over 1,000 public sector organizations in the US and Europe to connect with more than 130 million people. GovDelivery was sold to Vista Equity Partners for over $150M and merged with Granicus in 2016, completing Burns' run as both a startup entrepreneur and a leader of a high growth company. Coming from Minnesota, Burns is dedicated to transforming the state in order to provide opportunity for all its citizens. As an established leader in the tech industry, Burns is committed to ensuring that individuals in Minnesota have access to the resources they need to succeed and be on the cutting edge of technology. With Burns' experience leading high growth companies and completing successful exits, he is confident that he will be able to help unite and transform the state of Minnesota.

We share this information in order to break down silos, enable learning from others and empower collaboration across Minnesota.

A quick pause to thank our employers:

We can represent as individuals. But we also need to connect our companies, their products and budgets to transform….

How can we influence the media with our corporate budgets to make the changes necessary in our state?

Please check out my organizations website to see if it could serve yours.

Thank youStructural, an Augeo companyfor supporting United We Transform!

To collaborate better, we need to connect across silos. We need to connect better within silos. Often times the best answer is just a cubicle away that you never would have thought of. Sometimes it is an ocean away.

We are now simply providing people here to help you connect and be more successful in your career, but right now… for Minnesota!
