Scott Nielson was born on April 27, 1976, and grew up in a small town north of Salt Lake City, called Clinton Utah. Growing up he had 6 siblings consisting of 4 brothers and 2 sisters. Scott's parents worked hard to give him the necessities in life. His mother was a homemaker and his father a truck driver. Money often got tight in his childhood and implanted a drive-in Scott to succeed in life. Scott was given many character traits from his parents that serve him well. His family moved to Hurricane Utah while Scott attended the fifth grade. Scott attended Hurricane High School in southern Utah. He later met and married Kristin Kolar and five years later they started a family together. They have 7 children, Rylee, Hannah, Jacob, Leah, the twins Nathan and Lincoln, and their youngest Kamryn.

Scott is a member of the Church of Jesus Christ. Faith has always been a key part of who Scott is. Both Scott and Kristen share a love for religion and often look for opportunities to help others.

Scott and Kristen Nielson, along with their foundation, aren't new to supporting and partnering with others within the business and local communities. In addition to launching the St. George Examiner, they have sponsored galas and other community events designed to support entrepreneurs and community leaders.

In Jan. 2022, the Scott & Kristen Nielson Family Foundation sponsored the St. George Area Chamber of Commerce Foundation Gala. The gala is an annual black-tie event that includes the presentation of the Arete Awards, which recognize community leaders known for service to others and innovation in business. The Neilson foundation partnered with other sponsors from the area to host the gala in 2022.

The type of work Scott and Kristen Nielson are involved in within and on behalf of the business community of southern Utah is contributing to growth in the area. The area is known in business circles as being a location of somewhat undiscovered entrepreneurial talent. Efforts like the Nielson's help those local talents find success while creating a buzz that can attract venture capital and other resources to the region.

Entrepreneurs and others in the area can connect with the St. George Entrepreneur online, including signing up to get news and resources by email.
