He serves on the board of Lucky Fish, Playbuzz, Puls, Splacer, Maapilim, Deep, Lightricks, and Origami Logic. He was also on the board of Tapingo (acquired by Grubhub for $150M).

In this episode, Danny, the Pearl Jam fan and investor talks all about what type of things he is looking for when investing in companies, the big difference between B2B and B2C investments and why a company with a marketer with a product background might score more points than a classically trained marketer.
