SCOTTEVEST’s Scott Jordan Primed for Prime Time
Entrepreneur Scott Jordan appearson ABC’s “Shark Tank,” Friday March 2, 8PM - Will he sink or swim?

Scott Jordan, CEO and founder of SCOTTEVEST and TEC -Technology Enabled Clothing,will appearon the Friday March 2 episode ofthe top-rated ABC series “Shark Tank.” Jordan, who never shies away from the spotlight or turns away from a challenge, commands the room (the tank, if you will) for a heated twelve minutes.  When hehas the opportunity to reach out to a mentor, he contacts Apple co-founderand SCOTTEVEST board member Steve Wozniak for advice.  He calls one shark’s lucrative offer “insane” and, as a parting shot, he makes a Shark Tank first by telling two of the sharks that THEY are out.

Scott Jordan has been the public face of his gadget-friendly clothing brand, SCOTTEVEST, and its wholly-owned subsidiary TEC
(Technology-Enabled-Clothing) for over a decade.  Jordan patented his design for a personal wire management system under the TEC name.  Current TEC licensees include The North Face, Wrangler, Jansport, Nautica, Spyder, Burton, Ralph Lauren, and Under Armour. SCOTTEVEST, which includes TEC systems in most of its products, has grown immensely since its founding in 2001(recently featured on Inc.’s list of Fastest Growing Companies), largely due to the dedication, intensity, and transparency of Scott Jordan.

Jordanis known for his passionate personality, fast-paced business maneuvers, and dedication to new technology and social media.  Hehas been written about extensively, including articles in The New York Times, The Wall Street Journal, Business Week, and Entrepreneur magazine and appeared on television in outlets including CNN and The Big Idea with Donnie Deutsch.  Shark Tank will be his biggest spotlight ever, but he is sure to hold his own in the tank (which features a panel of five wildly successful “sharks” including billionaire Mark Cuban and technology-innovator Robert Herjavec).  His will likely be the segment you don’t want to miss this season.
