Key Accomplishments

I have over 20 years combined experience in startups and management consulting, with a focus on product definition (including business model and market fit), implementation from concept to launch, and general management. Effective in both business strategy and block-and-tackle implementation, equally comfortable with blank pages and intractable problems.

Dan advised our startup from before we had co-founded it.

Dan has pushed us to minimize risks on multiple fronts, consistently pointing out potential pitfalls both on the business and the science needed to make the business survive.

David Coleman
We worked together  •  Marketing & Business Development Director, SoundStreak. Previously Director, Digital Auctions, Penton Media.
I first met David as an advisor to his startup, but quickly concluded it was a better idea to become his co-founder. David is thoughtful, i ... ntrepid, determined and great at coming up with clever ways around obstacles. In the years I've known David, I've seen him go deep on a variety of topics; he does his homework, admits it when he doesn't know something, and then goes and finds the missing knowledge.

Mike Halsall

I've known Mike casually for a few months now. Our introduction was via a highly trusted mutual colleague, and he has consistently impresse ... d me with his acumen and charm.
