40 under Forty winners (from left) Emily DeGray, Alexander Dunn, Jonathan Miller and Amy Peterson.

Dunn and two friends co-founded Skyscope in 2012. Over the next three years, Dunn worked on finance and business strategy while overseeing daily operations for the video production firm, eventually growing to a 10-employee operation providing services for dozens of national technology companies. In April, they secured an acquisition deal with Boston-area firm Matter Communications to retain the entire team.

Dunn serves on the Community Advisory Committee for the Worcester Redevelopment Authority and acts as a mentor for a STEM incubator.

What is your most significant professional goal? Be on the founding team of a scalable company that can grow a to 500+ employees.

What would you like to go back and tell your 10-year-old self? The music industry is about to go through a very turbulent decade. Buy Apple stock now. Sell it when Steve Jobs dies.

Where do you get your motivation? My family, audio books, creative chefs and restaurants owners.

If I hadn't gone down this career path, I would have liked to… become an architect. I hope to design and build my own house one day.
