About Daavi

I am a marketer with over 10 years of experience growing B2C businesses through advertising. My particular expertise is the use of data and analytics to identify opportunities. I am well versed in nearly all advertising channels, online and offline, and ran marketing for an $80mil business that you have probably heard of.

I left full-time work 5 years ago to allow myself the chance to actually start a business. FT work makes it very difficult to maintain focus and energy on a side project. But despite a few attempts, I have not yet come up with anything worth mentioning. So I'm looking for a partner, ideally which technical skills, who either has or is interested in developing an idea to take to market with me. My focus is more on partnership than a product to take to market. I believe success is about the right team, and that with this team, it's only a matter of time before a winning idea comes about.

In the meantime, I consult to help companies who are struggling to grow or who have become inefficient. I do everything from audit their campaigns/data/partners, to develop new campaigns/reports/infrastructure to allow for future growth. It's a pretty fun way to pass the time until I come across the right idea or partner.
