As Co-Founder and CEO of Here’s My Chance, Dave ensures that creative concepts and key decisions maintain relevancy for the agency’s clients and their strategic business partnerships and social impact goals.
Before launching Here’s My Chance, David spent three years working with Artists & Instigators, a Marc Ecko venture capital and innovation group, supporting investor relations and market due diligence. His efforts led to investment into Ryzing, a social gaming company, where David built real-time sweepstakes games allowing players to win cash and prizes while supporting charitable organizations. His unique incentive mechanics were influential in the growth of the 500,000+ player community and set a new standard for the use of games for social good.
David began his career in Washington, D.C. working with federal agencies and contractors on the use of enterprise software and Web 2.0 technologies to drive efficient government and civic engagement. As a market entry specialist, David helped educate established government bureaucrats and Fortune 1000 executives on the power of transparency and interactive media to simplify procurement cycles, partner relations, employee training, and communication infrastructure.
David holds an MBA in International Business from Temple University’s Fox School. He is the Mobile Application Board Advisor of Zagster, a TechStars company and Executive Chair of The Spruce Foundation, cultivating the next generation of Philadelphia’s philanthropists and youth advocates.Google+
