Obsessed with Startups
Hi! I'm Daniel. Every day, I see people struggling to turn great ideas into successful startups. Helping founders create good, scalable technology and build investable companies is what I do best. With three successful exits, and many years of technology experience, I can help you validate your idea, follow best practices, raise money, and scale your product and business.
Not sure where to start? Just have a quick technical question? I'm a huge believer in the foundation of Boulder's startup community: Give First. I hold open office hours every Monday where entrepreneurs can come talk about anything. There's no sales pitch, no upsell, and no commitment. Just 30 minutes of conversation.
"Test Driven" isn't just for Development. We use the same technique for the "ops" part of DevOps, too.
Too many viable companies die, bankrupt from technical debt, when it is completely unnecessary. Want to avoid their fate? Before you write a single line of code, know what the best practices and "right" way are, then each and every time you depart from them, document why and assign a dollar value of technical debt. Accumulating debt isn't a problem as long as you manage it and stay ahead of it.
2015 was a year of endings, so 2016 must be a year of beginnings.
I love Startup Weekends! Come see why!
I used to hate Mondays. Like a good entrepreneur, I re-engineered my world to solve my own problem, and now Mondays are my favorite day of the week.
Change. Yeah. Lots of words about change.
CUNVC 8 is about to start. Here are a few thoughts on how to get the most out of it.
Pitch competitions give aspiring entrepreneurs the entirely wrong message when it comes to building a startup.
Being a startup founder is a source of stress, anxiety, and depression. Why don't we talk about managing that the same way we talk about managing blood pressure?

I love talking to aspiring entrepreneurs, tech people, and just about any other kind of person. I open up my calendar on Mondays for mentoring, chatting, and anything else people need. Grab some time and let's walk and talk!
