The initial funding for the GW Business Plan Competition was provided by a generous grant from Richard and Annette Scott, the founding sponsors of the competition.

First Lady Annette Scott was born in Mobile, Alabama but grew up in Dallas, Texas. She met Governor Scott during her senior year of high school and they have been married for over 41 years.

They have two married daughters, Allison and Jordan, and three grandsons, Auguste, Quinton and Sebastian. As an avid reader, the First Lady spends time visiting schools and libraries across Florida, encouraging kids to read and write. As a mother, she knows healthy bodies make healthy minds, so she supports health and nutrition. The First Lady also advocates on behalf of foster children and military families in the state of Florida.

Throughout their lives, the Governor and First Lady have been committed to helping their community locally and around the world. Mrs. Scott has a degree in business administration from Southern Methodist University in Dallas, Texas. Prior to her role as First Lady, Mrs. Scott ran a successful interior design business in Naples, Florida.
