I’m Dave. I'm a founder.
Being a founder is hard—and I should know. Previously, I co-founded and scaled three venture-backed companies, including Delivery Hero which IPO'd in 2017. Today, I coach the world’s fastest growing CEOs to help them reshape their role and achieve their ambitions. My writings are popular among founders & investors from Silicon Valley to São Paulo.
