About Dan

- Mechanical engineer by degree (Graduate 2004)
- Started a product based startup, 3 government grants, pitched it to international distributers....after 4yrs without a deal on the table and ballooning patent costs we decided to call it quits.
- Co-founded beingthere.com.au built it up to 20+ enterprise clients and continue to advise on growth strategy
- First employee at brightgeneration.com.au, I did product, sales, operations as we grew from zero sales to 450/mth ($2M+/mth)....crazy time :)
- relocated from Western Australia to San Francisco August this year to pursue my passion for startup. I have an awesome job in BD at Udemy.com, but I ultimately want to be a founder......and founding dating takes a while, so I am starting now :)
