As someone who previously co-founded a mobile telehealth software company, Dave is passionate about helping growth-stage software businesses unlock their full potential. He loves building relationships with management teams and working collaboratively to identify and execute on value creation initiatives. Initiatives that both accelerate growth and improve operating performance.

As a Principal in the firm, Dave splits his time between leading new investments and working with our existing portfolio companies to help them optimize growth. From his entrepreneurial days, Dave brings a focus on continuous improvement. He leads internal initiatives such as our go-to-market strategy along with our technology innovation committee, which has implemented solutions from Slack to a full-blown CRM migration.

Outside of the office, Dave is a sports fanatic (though his early dreams of NBA stardom died when he failed to exceed 5’7”). His claim to fame is completing a 58-hour charity event during college that set the Guinness World Record for the longest continuous basketball game (raising $60,000 for children with life-threatening illnesses in the process).

Although he was born and raised in Durham and attended Duke for graduate school, for Dave, the sky is Carolina blue.
