Dan is an Associate at Active where he focuses on sourcing and execution of investments and managing portfolio companies. His investment interests include digital consumer platforms, health & wellness and hospitality. Before joining Active, Dan was a consultant at Bain & Company in London, working on strategy projects for clients in the consumer sector and commercial due diligence for leading private equity firms.
Originally hailing from Cape Town, Dan has lived in London since 2017 after completing his master’s degree in economics in Cambridge. He’s a keen golfer and passionate about cooking, always on the lookout for new dishes he can recreate at home (or can’t, as the case may be).
What I enjoy most about Active is the opportunity to work with founders who are reimagining the categories they play in, with a focus on what really matters to consumers. It excites me to discover brands that make people happy and help founders on their journey to creating world-class businesses.
