Ashley Scott is a natural at fostering connections: between businesses and communities, between young professionals, and between individuals and their goals. As operations manager and community curator at MatchBOX Coworking Studio, she oversees a shared work and creative space for entrepreneurs and office nomads. Her skills at bringing people and ideas together were evident at Purdue, where she worked to form the Black Thought Collective.
After graduation, she worked in Purdue’s Office of Admissions and later encouraged urban entrepreneurs in her position at digitalundivided. She also started and maintains Ashley G. Scott Consulting and the meetup group Black Professionals of Greater Lafayette. It’s no surprise that she was selected as the Purdue Alumni Association’s 2011 Outstanding Young Alumna, one of Tippy Connect’s Top 10 Under 40 from Greater Lafayette Commerce, and one of Northeast Indiana’s 101 Connectors.
