Dan Shapiro isn’t ready to spill the beans on what he’s up to just yet, but word is already on the street that he’s rounded up a great group of folks to back him on his next venture: Sparkbuy. Dan was previously CEO of Ontela, acquired by Photobucket about a year ago). We think the world of Dan and are (obviously) super-excited about what he’s up to, but will leave it to him to tell you what that is.
Since we can’t talk about the product, we can at least share one of the reasons why we like Sparkbuy as a Founders Co-op investment. As Dan put it in the TechFlash story on the raise:
“I am really excited about building a startup that is leaner and is able to consume less resources to go after its goal, and that was one of the things that I was excited to try differently this time around.”
