Scott McDougall’s career started with interactive pre-Internet digital media in 1982 and leading edge projects ranging from being Product Manager for the development and marketing of an online interactive graphics version of Statistics Canada’s socio-economic database, to initiating the Ontario government’s first use of digital touch-screen technology at the Hannover Fair in Germany, and working with companies like Rogers Cable and Bell Canada.
Until 2000, Scott provided business plan, offering memorandum and financing consulting services to early stage technology enterprises including being an investor/ partner in a wireless technology business that received a prestigious "R&D 100" award with Noranda Inc. and the U.S. Bureau of Mines, and later being responsible for the development of the business plan and going public process for two dot-com companies.
After the dot-com crash Scott became a financing and acquisition consultant for a wide variety of real estate clients and development projects. In 2001 he became interested in "green" technology and in 2002 was a Director and turn-around consultant for a public composite lumber company that was later sold. In this sector he is currently a founding shareholder and Director with New Fuel International, Inc. of Seattle, Washington which is planning to launch its first large scale biomass to natural diesel commercial production plants in 2019.
Scott is also currently a partner in a 3.6 acre four building Kitchener, Ontario Canada condo and rental project, plus 8,000 SF commercial development site. Also a Community Development and Financing Director of Washington State based "small homes" manufacturer International Housing Concepts, and financing consultant for the Terry Fox Gardens Mixed-Use Development and potential 2nd Toronto NHL Team Project.
Scott also has an excellent understanding of public relations and public affairs from forty-five years of senior level political participation, and served as a member of the Ontario Minister of Economic Development and Trade’s Policy Advisory Committee from 1995-2003 during which time he also chaired an Access to Capital sub-committee. In 1998 he was elected National Blue Committee founding President and played a significant leadership role in unity efforts that ended vote splitting between two existing competing parties through the creation of the new Conservative Party of Canada in 2003.
