David Braun is an award-winning extreme-sports athlete, VC, Serial Entrepreneur, UI/UX Designer and Mentor. He is a multinational citizen and has travelled to 75+ countries.
His passion for running which started when he was a little boy growing up in Kenya, lead him to create DASHR, a sports platform for connecting runners. The app analyses the way people run and matches them with runners and running events that perform at the same level, increasing motivation and engagement at events.
The venture-backed startup was one of the winning teams to be selected for TechnoGym’s first cycle of its Wellness Accelerator.
Having a pay-it-forward mentality, David dedicates large portions of his time towards helping other aspiring entrepreneurs, by mentoring at various accelerators including the new LeAD Sports Accelerator by Adi Dassler’s grandsons and Startupbootcamp Digital Health. Advising Go4.it, he connects the sports tech world and sources deal-flow, as well as advises portfolio companies of the fund.
