We all read the press - all the success, the hero CEO’s, the huge valuations, the incredible wealth. Scott Moody, CEO of K4Connect, shares the realities of being an entrepreneur, the ups and the downs, and, in the end, what’s important.

F.

The Company enhances its clients’ lives through an integrated connected-life software platform that brings together the best in home automation products, health and wellness technologies, and communication and social functionality.

The Company has now raised over $25M from firms such as Intel Capital, AXA and Sierra Ventures.

Previously, Scott was the co-founder and CEO of AuthenTec (Melbourne, FL) prior to its acquisition by Apple in 2012 (the only acquisition of a public company by Apple). AuthenTec’s fingerprint sensor technology is now the foundation of Apple’s Touch ID. As the CEO of AuthenTec, Scott raised over $70 million in venture capital (including Sierra Ventures, The Carlyle Group, Texas Instruments and others) and led the company’s successful IPO. The Company had over 230 patents upon its acquisition.

Scott began his career at Harris Semiconductor (now Intersil) in 1980 where he eventually became Division VP of a $200M division before co-founding AuthenTec in 1998.

In addition to his activities with K4Connect, Scott is the Founder of First Talent Ventures, which invests in early stage startups and funds in underserved markets. He is also a venture advisor to Cofounders Capital and Stonehenge Growth Equity, an advisor to the National Science Foundation’s ASSIST program centered at NCSU and a member of the Advisory Board of NCSU’s ISE Department.
