Scott Kriens, co-creator of 1440 Multiversity
Scott Kriens, chairman and former CEO of Juniper Networks, has been in the technology industry for more than 35 years. In 1996, he cofounded Juniper Networks, growing the company to $4 billion in global sales and more than 10,000 employees in 100+ countries.
In 2010, Scott and his wife Joanie launched 1440 Foundation, a grant-making organization committed to the cultivation of truly real and connected relationships, with self and others, as a basis for living well. The work of the Foundation led Scott and Joanie to launch 1440 Multiversity, a 21st century learning destination in the California redwoods of Santa Cruz County.
At his core, Scott is a learner and a builder, committed to finding new ways to tie the world around us to that which is real and powerful within us—whether for the purpose of building teams as a leader in the tech industry or simply as an advocate for the path to living lives of true resonance.
