Rise Art co-founder Scott Phillips moved to Europe in 2003 to run Red Herring magazine’s European team. He was responsible for overseeing business development and global events. Scott holds an MBA from the London Business School and has had strategy and development roles with Microsoft, Dialog Semiconductor and the online video network Rightster.

Scott will be writing a regular column for My Entrepreneur Magazine starting from January 2018.
Rise Art is a curated online gallery where anyone can easily discover and own extraordinary contemporary art from around the world. It was born out of a belief that there was an easier way for people interested in contemporary art to discover works they loved – simply, online and without the fear or intimidation that usually goes along with buying art.
