Entrepreneur. CEO and Cofounder of Mattermark, angel investor and software developer. Early Twilio employee, Y Combinator alumni (Summer 2012). Passionate about time travel.
I was the 1st employee at Twilio, where I lead marketing and grew the developer community to 100,000 members.
I have a reputation for saying the thing that other people won't. Want a general health check for your company? Struggling with some problem and want an unconventional approach to solving it? I can help.
I have a template spreadsheet I have used to help dozens of startups set up their initial metrics, used for internal operations and investor updates. Can be set up in less than an hour.
Raised over $18M in early-stage funding from angel investors and notable venture capital firms including Foundry Group, NEA, Andreessen Horowitz, Felicis, Flybridge Capital Partners and 500 Startups. Y Combinator summer 2012 alum.
Danielle was super insightful! Thx a lot.
I came away from my chat with Danielle with a number of new ideas that I had not considered. It was definitely worth chatting with her and I would highly recommend talking with her if you need a fresh set of eyes on your issue.
Danielle was very insightful and interesting. She helped me identify the problems and work towards potential solutions.
Danielle asked incisive questions and immediately cut through the B.S.
In 30 minutes, she...
-Identified the major gap in my fundraising strategy
-Taught me a cool trick for getting my emails to VCs read and noticed (when competing against hundreds of others for attention)
-Gave me the honest & no-holds-barred feedback that I've been seeking (but haven't been able to find locally)
I left with a todo list,an improved strategy,and a clear picture of my strengths and weaknesses.
