High Volume Manufacturing and Entrepreneurship
Scott N. Miller is the Chief Executive Officer of Dragon Innovation, where he has served since founding the company in 2009.
Scott is a mechanical engineer by training, with extensive hands-on and leadership experience designing and manufacturing software controlled electro-mechanical systems. He began his career building robots, including biomimetic robotic tuna fish at MIT, undersea remotely operated vehicles at Deep Sea Systems, and full size walking dinosaurs at Walt Disney Imagineering R&D.
Scott joined iRobot early in their life cycle, and spent 10 years progressing from a Sr. Mechanical Engineer to Vice President roles. Initially, he was responsible for leading the technology team that partnered with Hasbro to create the next wave of interactive toys. Based on his knowledge and network, he was selected by the CEO to set up the core manufacturing capabilities for multiple new consumer robotic product lines. Scott moved to China for four years, and lead the teams who manufactured the first four generations of Roomba and Scooba, successfully completing an IPO in 2005. Scott repatriated as the Vice President of Engineering to lead a team of 75 people, and was responsible for all phases of the Consumer Robotic Division’s technology, including factory selection, supply chain strategy, costing and sourcing, DFMA and manufacturing.
Seeing the dawn of the hardware revolution, Scott founded Dragon Innovation in 2009 to help hardware companies safely scale from a prototype through high volume production. Leveraging his manufacturing knowledge, tools and network, Scott has grown Dragon into a venture backed international company with over 30 people and worked with hundreds of companies ranging from Pebble to the Bose.
Scott holds a Bachelor’s Degree in Engineering from Dartmouth College and a Masters in Ocean Engineering from MIT. For more information: https://www.linkedin.com/in/scottnmiller/
