About Dan

I do business design and strategy, focusing on Innovation (new products). i've built that skill set in a couple startups, gotten an MBA and worked inside a couple of the Fortune 100 to see how its done when big money is at risk, but my brain and personality are built for startups. I've been doing it since I was 19, I like getting my hands dirty and working with other people who can't sleep because they're building something big.

Few things I'll bring to the table: concept and product design, positioning, sizing, consumer research, competitive analysis, branding, projection and growth models, pitching to clients or investors, marketing and sales strategy, sales, plus the managing of day-to-day operations...

I'm looking for the developer compliment to that skill set. If you're a solid developer with or without that product yet, a bit of a generalist but needing a business counterpart I'd like to at least meet, but ideally you're already working on an alpha version of something you think has the potential to be big, and want to do it right. I can help you get there.
