Exploring Entrepreneurial Excellence: Scott Cohen’s Inspiring Journey on FORGE’s Latest Podcast

FORGE, the University of Arizona’s hub for fostering entrepreneurial growth, has recently launched a new podcast as an extension of their popular FORGE Fireside video series. The podcast, which promises engaging discussions with business and community leaders, featured a notable conversation in its premiere episode with University of Arizona alumni and Byte co-founders Scott Cohen and Blake Johnson.

In this inaugural episode, hosted by Founding Executive Director Brian Ellerman, the spotlight was on Scott Cohen, a serial entrepreneur and investor with a remarkable track record in steering start-up companies through growth stages to successful exits. Cohen, who has been recognized as the EY Entrepreneur of the Year, shared his entrepreneurial insights and experiences, particularly focusing on the aspects that have significantly contributed to his success.

Cohen’s journey with Byte, as covered in FORBES magazine, is a testament to his and Johnson’s entrepreneurial prowess. Described as “one of the greatest direct-to-consumer success stories of the century,” Byte was founded in 2017 and launched its products in early 2019. In less than two years, the duo clinched a billion-dollar all-cash deal with Dentsply, marking a major milestone in their business journey.

Apart from his business endeavors, Cohen also plays a vital role in the non-profit sector, serving on the Board of Directors for five organizations. His work spans various fields, including health, economic empowerment, education, and poverty alleviation, reflecting his commitment to using his entrepreneurial skills for broader societal benefits.

Blake Johnson, another guest on the podcast, is an accomplished Los Angeles-based entrepreneur. Johnson, with a portfolio of five businesses that have a cumulative valuation exceeding $1.15 billion, has also been recognized as an EY Entrepreneur of the Year.

In the podcast, listeners also get a glimpse of Cohen and Johnson’s latest venture, Alter: The Future of Fitness and Health. This new endeavor promises to bring innovative changes to the fitness and health sector.

The FORGE Fireside podcast offers an invaluable opportunity for aspiring entrepreneurs and business enthusiasts to gain insights from seasoned entrepreneurs like Scott Cohen. His unique perspective and extensive experience in both the for-profit and non-profit sectors make this episode a must-listen for anyone interested in the entrepreneurial journey and its wider impact on society.
