Scott Samuel "Scooter" Braun (born June 18, 1981) is an American business person and record executive.[1][2][3][4] He was nominated for a Grammy Award in 2016.[5] Braun is also co-founder of the comic-film studio, Mythos Studios, along with Hollywood producer David Maisel and co-owner of the esports team 100 Thieves.[6][7]

In 2013, Braun was included on the annual Time 100 list of the most influential people in the world.[8] In 2018, Braun co-organized March for Our Lives, the student-led demonstration for stricter gun laws which USA Today measured as the largest single-day protest in Washington, D.C. history.[9]

Early life

Braun was born in New York City to Conservative Jewish parents,[10] Ervin and Susan (née Schlussel) Braun. Ervin's parents "had barely escaped" the Holocaust, and lived in Hungary until 1956, when they fled to the United States. Ervin grew up in Queens, and became a dentist; Susan Schlussel Braun was an orthodontist. After the couple married, they settled in Greenwich, Connecticut.[11][12]

Braun has four siblings, including Adam Braun. He grew up in Cos Cob, Connecticut and attended Greenwich High School where he was elected class president.[13]

Braun went to college at Emory University in Atlanta where he also played college basketball until his sophomore year.[11] After Jermaine Dupri asked him to become the head of marketing at his label, So So Def, Braun reportedly dropped out of university without a degree.[14][15][16]
