Meet Daniel DeWolf
What really excites me about working with young companies is the energy they bring to the table. Our start-up clients have all the enthusiasm and excitement I had when I co-founded my own early-stage venture capital firm (during Web 1.0) called Dawntreader Ventures. What we can add to a founder’s enthusiasm and passion are the experience and business acumen in this space that come from years of being involved at the crossroads of the Internet, capital formation, and information technology. Experience matters. Oh, and having a law degree certainly helps. Knowing the law and guiding entrepreneurs and growth companies from concept to exit is what we do best. Helping to build new companies in a collaborative fashion in partnership with our clients is what we are all about.
