People like Nathan are pretty darn rare. He's probably one of the most inspiring go-getters-rain-makers-kick-ass-entrepreneurs that I've ever met.
Nathan and I have first met when he started a business similar to mine and asked for advice. His ability to learn from others, implement (fast) and then take things to the next level, and blazed forward - leaving us with dust! :) His combination of courage, friendship, genuineness and absolute faith in his own abilities, make him a force of nature that is to be recognized.
Nathan is an asset in any business or personal transaction you could consider him a part of. I truly believe that he can do, and succeed, in anything he chooses.
Editors like Nathan are an dream for freelance writers. Crystal clear with his vision, open to new ideas and always easy-going, Nathan easily extracts the best from you. Watching Nathan evolve Foundr and hone his unique approach over the past few years has been very cool - I'm sure the magazine will be the first of many successful ventures!
Professional, well connected and generous with his time and knowledge are the words that come to mind when I think about Nathan. I’ve had the pleasure of knowing Nathan for the past six months during which time he has supported the establishment of our Getting Down to Business program for young entrepreneurs aged 16-25 in Victoria, Australia. He did all of this with commitment, great humour, and interest in the success of others. Nathan ‘s publication Foundr is a must read for all entrepreneurs.
Nathan is a superstar entrepreneur. Extremely knowledgeable, calculated and is doing amazing things at a world class level. I had the pleasure of being interviewed and featured in Foundr alongside many other successful entrepreneurs. I would highly recommend working with Nathan, his attention detail and commitment to success is extremely impressive.
There are few people I have come across in my professional life who are as dedicated and as driven as Nathan. Having worked with him over the past four years, he has continually impressed me with his bold vision and commitment to his own learning and development in order to create a successful career. I am in awe of his fearless pursuit of his goals – he possesses the kind of inherent entrepreneurial qualities that mark people out for early success, and is the kind of guy whose team you immediately want to be playing for. He has a real talent for connecting the right people on the right venture, and he follows through on his commitment to the success of a project. Nathan has a drive and enthusiasm that is contagious, and he inspires a similar enthusiasm amongst everyone he works with.
Nathan is a courageous, resourceful and calculated young entrepreneur with a fantastic vision and a fantastic product. My 12 year old daughter, a budding entrepreneur herself loves the Foundr magazine. Apparently she found it in the "Newstand" on her iPhone. Given this and the fact that Foundr has such a large global reach, I would say that Nathan's marketing skills are very valuable. I wish you every success Nathan and thank you for your continued support on the iAwards Hills Young Innovator Award, you are a great role model!
Nathan did a fantastic job building and marketing digital magazines for our websites Luxury Escapes and The Home. Apart from being a great guy, Nathan is highly professional and knowledgeable. I would wholeheartedly recommend working with him if you could use his help!
Nathan Chan... what can I say? Digital Publishing super star, phenomenal entrepreneur and simply an amazing person. Nathan has repeatedly demonstrated that few understand digital publishing and the Apple NewsStand as well as he does. Humble, hard-working and a professional I can't recommend Nathan highly enough. If you get the chance to work with Nathan or are lucky enough to have him consult on your digital venture, then do it. Savvy and on-the-cutting edge Nathan is truly an A-player.
