Strategic & Innovation Consulting, Venture Capitalist, Mentor and Advisor
Deb Mills-Scofield is passionate about helping companies and individuals see what’s possible and make plans to achieve it. Her penchant for envisioning how things could be, running at the world of the possible, manifested in full force starting in college when she helped create Brown University’s Cognitive Science concentration and finished it in 3 years. At Bell Labs, where Deb spent the bulk of her early career, she created one of AT&T’s highest-revenue generating patents because it was based on real customers’ real needs.
It was also at Bell that Deb discovered the pleasure of fostering the potential of others through writing and investing. Her articles in Harvard Business Review, her own blog and contributions to various business books are all geared at inspiring people to dream what they can achieve and giving them the tools to make it happen. Deb did the same thing, but with capital and direct advice as a partner at the early stage VC firm Glengary LLC.
Today Deb fosters innovation and growth in others through her strategy and innovation consulting with mid to large-sized privately held companies and with her student entrepreneurs. As a consultant and a mentor, Deb is exposed to a vast range of types of people and disciplines, fueling her curiosity for surprising interdisciplinary approaches to new problems and building unexpected connections.
