Jonathan Scott is the CEO of Supply Clouds. Supply Clouds is a cloud based booking technology that connects schools with agencies who provide teachers.  Jonathan Scott started out as a teacher but went into to supply teaching instead to finance himself to become an entrepreneur.

Like a number of entrepreneurs he looked at, examined and identified something that he thought could be improved and came up with a solution before fully committing his energies in to setting up his own business.  Up until Supply Clouds, if schools wanted to book, a supply teacher it would have to contact four separate agencies over the phone which meant wasting valuable process.  According to Jonathan Scott this was a very “disjointed” way of employing the services of a supply teacher. Supply Clouds is a three way communication tool that connects schools, agencies and supply teachers together.  When jobs are advertised, it is streamlined by one message to four different agencies.  The system even provides assistance in giving directions to each school that way each supply teacher knows exactly where each school is.

Jonathan had been a Dyslexia Action Ambassador and like so many entrepreneurs, he himself has dyslexia.  As a dyslexic entrepreneur, he firmly believes that “we don’t have the mindset to follow patterns”. If you’re looking for innovation, but going over and over the same things again and again your own following an expected pattern and that is why so many entrepreneurs don’t allows follow a single mindset.  But although he admits himself that he wasn’t always that popular with his peers and got used to academically failing.  “If you go through life failing then you have nothing to lose, you become powerful and you become dangerous and when failing becomes the norm you become disruptive in every aspect of life”. That is why so many people identify entrepreneurs as risk takers. According to Jonathan the UK has the mindset of copying and won’t take risks, this compares to America with “first foot forward”.
