Short Bio

Daniel’s life has been shaped by a fundamental belief that entrepreneurship is the answer to nearly all the issues we face today. By the time he received his undergraduate degree in philosophy, he’d already started three companies. In 2012 he was recognized by Inc. Magazine as a “30 under 30 entrepreneur” and by Forbes as one of the “top 30 most impactful entrepreneurs” of the year. In 2013, he received the prestigious “Entrepreneur of the World” award along with Richard Branson at the Global Entrepreneurship Forum. Today, this passion for entrepreneurship and startups has led to the creation of Unreasonable Group ( www.unreasonablegroup.com ). The vision of Unreasonable Group is to create a collective family of companies that will, together, put a dent on the seemingly intractable social and environmental challenges of this century. Daniel is proudly the founder of many Unreasonable companies including the Unreasonable Institute, Unreasonable Adventures, Unreasonable.is, Unreasonable at Sea, and Unreasonable Media. Daniel is also the co-founder and director of the Girl Effect Accelerator which is the world’s first program dedicated to entrepreneurs who are positioned to benefit millions of girls in poverty. Daniel believes in militant transparency and truthfulness in his everyday life and in all of the projects he is part of. He also has an overt love for his hometown of Boulder Colorado and for his dog, Kaya. (For more info, see Wikipedia)

A fundamental belief that entrepreneurship is the answer to nearly all the issues we face today has shaped Daniel’s life. By the time he received his degree in philosophy from CU Boulder, he’d already started three companies. On matters of entrepreneurship, he has spoken everywhere from The White House, to The UN General Assembly, The U.S. State Department, The Aspen Institute, Harvard and Stanford Universities, in front of an audience of over 10,000 engineers in Brazil as well as facilitating intimate workshops around policy and innovation at Google. Daniel has been featured in the NY Times, Wall-street Journal, Techcrunch, ABC, The BBC and as of 2013, Forbes has recognized him as one of the 30 most impactful entrepreneurs, Inc Mag as a 30 under 30 entrepreneur, The White House recognized Daniel as “One of the Top 100 U.S. Entrepreneurs Under the Age of 30,” and the Diplomatic Courier recognizes Daniel as one of the top 99 most influential foreign diplomats under the age 30. In 2013, he received the prestigious “Entrepreneur of the World” award along with Richard Branson and 2 Nobel Peace Prize Winners at the World Entrepreneurship Forum.

Today, this passion for entrepreneurship and startups has led Daniel to becoming the Founder of Unreasonable Group ( www.unreasonablegroup.com ). The vision behind Unreasonable Group is to create a collective family of companies that will together, put a dent on the seemingly intractable social and environmental challenges of this century. Daniel is proudly the founder of many Unreasonable companies including the Unreasonable Institute, Unreasonable Adventures, Unreasonable.is, and Unreasonable Media. Daniel is also the co-founder and director of the Girl Effect Accelerator which is the world’s first program dedicated to entrepreneurs who are positioned to benefit millions of girls in poverty. In early 2013, Daniel pushed the limits of his own imagination with the launch of Unreasonable at Sea: a radical experiment in transnational tech entrepreneurship. The program convened 10 technology start-ups solving pressing social and environmental challenges, and placed them on a ship, along with 20 mentors ranging from The Arch Bishop Desmond Tutu, to the Founder of WordPress and the Head of GoogleX. Together, this unlikely crew sailed over 25,000 nautical miles and into 14 countries in an effort to scale promising technological solutions into new international markets. Experiments like these point to Daniel’s healthy disregard for the impossible. Beyond his startups, Daniel believes in militant transparency and truthfulness in his everyday life and in all of the projects he is part of. He also has an overt love for his hometown of Boulder Colorado and for his dog, Kaya. (For more info, see Wikipedia)
