David is a special person with an uncommon perspective that spans multiple industries and job functions. He has particularly keen insights when it comes to fundraising, mobile technology, sensors, branding, and the digital space. His connectedness to the investment community is second to none and he does not hesitate to put his relationships to work. I cannot recommend David strongly enough.
Founder & CEO of FitDeck; Harvard Business School, former Navy SEAL, former Goldman Sachs Banker, Yale University, firefighter, husband and father of four.
I was a 23-year-old first-time founder when I met David at Clearstone and can speak from the experience of working w/ him for three years on Apture's board, and through our acquisition by Google. What makes David unique is that he truly believes and invests in people, and it shows. He throws all his weight behind his belief in founders, even when there's speed bumps along the way. David always rolled up his sleeves whenever he was asked to help – whether it was to recruit a leading candidate over breakfast, or discuss business strategy at 11pm on a Sunday. I recommend David any day.
