Our Founder

"Coaching and thought partnership go hand-in-hand."


After scaling three venture-backed businesses, Dave became a CEO coach to provide the support he lacked while scaling his companies.

Six years and 100+ CEOs later, Dave founded Founder Coach with the mission to bring together the best founders and coaches and provide the ultimate founder support.
