Dave has the drive, the insight and the desire to succeed. He knows how to identify a target market and understand it, inside and out. He al ... so knows how to find the people he needs to bring his vision to life.

We worked together at Twistbox Entertainment
Dave is a savvy entrepreneur with lots of ideas and therefore lots of side projects at various stages of development. When he commits to a r ... ole, he lives and breathes it, not just works it.
Jan Dreier
We worked together at Eyematic
He is passionate about pretty much anything he tackles, thinks deeply about it, gathers a wealth of information and comes up with fresh and ... interesting solutions. He is also upstanding, caring, honest and considerate. Qualities often lacking in entrepreneurs in the tech field. An all-around Class A guy!

I have known and worked with Dave for 7 years. I've been both his co-worker at Mandalay as well as his co-founder at Subtextual. There are n ... ot enough superlatives to describe Dave as an entrepreneur. I fully expect to work with him again in the future, and can only congratulate the co-founder who will have the opportunity to do so in the present!

Dave is a resourceful, intelligent, and passionate professional that is well poised to motivate those around him to create a business that i ... s both profitable and necessary for today's world. If you need somebody to build a rallying cry coupled with a strong foundation of innovative ideas that are realistic and executable, Dave is your go-to resource.

They're my friends
Dave has been an entrepreneur since I met him over 10 years ago. He sees opportunities where others don't and isn't afraid to go for it. Fea ... r holds back many, but Dave knows the risks and goes forward anyway.
Michael Steuer
We worked together
I have myself started 3 companies including the one I am now working "in". I met Dave during a time when I tried the "employed" way of life ... and he then came directly from a start-up -> we had a few things in common. Fact is that during the time we worked in the same company, Dave started a new business inside it to expand the current offering the company had. Very driven but never forgetting the important things. I don't know what makes a good entrepreneur really but I know that Dave is a person I respect, a person that get's things done in the right way and above all honest with a high integrity. Would be happy to work with him again under any setting! I hope this small "letter" helps him in the best possible way we can all use some help sometimes!

Dave is a very talented and creative person with a great mind for business. He constantly stays connected. I would look to him to have the ... most up-to-date data and to know "what's new". This knowledge is what gives him vision. What takes him to the next level is his ability to plan and execute. He is also great at leading a team by creating a positive and energetic work environment. Dave's knowledge and ability to communicate to me the what's and why's of our industry were invaluable to me, and helped me to make good decisions about our business. I continue to go to him for insight into the business.

Dave has a deep understanding of the mobile and media space. He has many years of experience building teams, projects and products that work ... well. He is a creative, intelligent leader.
Bertil Krumnack
We worked together
When I started to work with Dave, he took a role within the company to explore new business. It was clear for me from the very beginning tha ... t he got things done. More importantly the way he did it was in a straight forward manner keeping everyone in the loop, not cutting corners. I am not sure if there are any specific things that makes a great entrepeneur as I have worked with many and all of them are different. What I feel though is that ethics, honesty and a will to do great things are important. Both for those who work with you but also for your customers and investors. Dave has that and I think he is able and willing to to the distance. Would love to work with him again in any shape and form.
