Martin Møller Nielsen
We worked together  •  CEO, Previously Co-founder, COO,
Dana already is a great entrepreneur!
Lindsay Caldwell
We worked together  •  Director of East Africa Operations, Angaza Design. Previously Chief Operating Officer, Yum Deliveries Limited. Stanford grad. Stanford grad.
Dana worked tirelessly to keep Yum, a food delivery website, up and running. She thought of creative strategies to bring in more business, w ... orked on the financial model to make it more viable in the long term, and gained the trust and respect of all team members. She was willing to work long hours but also delegate work as needed.
Arielle Sandor
They're my friends  •  Co-Founder, CEO, Duma Works. Previously Founder, Princeton Advertising Club. Princeton grad.
Dana decides on what she wants to do and then gets it done. She is a great strategic thinker and can handle tons of pressure. I've seen her ... work in a very challenging environment in Nairobi and I think she is up to any task set ahead of her.
Punit Shah
We worked together  •  Product & Partnerships, OkHi. Previously Business Analyst, McKinsey & Company. Stanford GSB grad. Harvard grad.
- She's got great experience running a business in Nairobi, meaning off-the-charts grit. If being an entrepreneur requires grit, being one i ... n Nairobi requires a whole other level from dealing with government issues to cultural barriers to police to a variety of other issues that come up. She was always on the ball and I was quite impressed by how she handled such things with grace. - She's very collaborative, resulting in immense people leadership skills that pushes everyone around her forward. I worked with Dana as another startup working with her company to help them on their logistics. While many other people may have tried at every moment to see how they could "beat" the other person, Dana took the view of how we could both succeed. Despite a more competitive approach that some of us on each side initially had, her presence and leading by example on working together meant both sides ended up with a product and commercial arrangement that was individually better for each of us than if we'd tried to take a more traditional, zero-sum game approach to negotiations and developing the end-product. It's quite a testament to her people leadership skills. - She's doesn't try to do things to just "look good" or doesn't try to "cover up" but readily admits her failures and weaknesses. As a result, she's much more willing to find people to complement her skillets (e.g. knowing the limits to her product development ability) and put trust in people and given them the autonomy to run with projects when they're better positioned to manage them than her. As a result, she gets more done quicker, and get the best out of the people around her.
