I am an angel investor and startup advisor based in Amsterdam. Previously, I was an early employee at Airbnb in San Francisco and helped the company grow from 30 to 3,000 employees. I am a member of AirAngels (Airbnb Alumni network) and OpX (a network of operators and founders in the Netherlands). I am passionate about working with startups in their earliest stages and guiding them on their journey toward success.

What others say
Daniel was instrumental in helping our team throughout our fundraising process. Together, we brought together a fantastic network of targeted individuals to contribute to our Seed round. We are so grateful to have Daniel in our corner!
Justine Palefsky, Co-Founder at Kindred
Daniel has honestly redefined our expectations of what it means to go above and beyond as an angel. As a seasoned operator and former founder, his advice on hiring and culture has had a major impact for us at Finary. Daniel is thoughtful, kind, and deeply empathetic — we feel incredibly grateful to have him onboard.
Roger Cawdette, Co-Founder at Finary
Daniel was one of the first team members at Airbnb and instrumental in building our early team. By applying creativity and hustle, he was able to identify and close some of the best talent out there. I recommend working with Daniel if you want to raise the bar of your team.
