Hi, I’m Derek Shanahan
I’m an entrepreneur & all-around curious person that’s been working in startup wonderland for about ten years now. I advise scaling startups on growth & marketing, often working with teams in the 2-20 person range. Denver’s the homebase these days, probably forever.
In 2007, I helped create one of the world’s largest blogger communities while working full time in Chicago as a personal financial planner.
In 2009, I cofounded Foodtree, a foodtech startup based in Vancouver, Canada which was acquired by Mobify in 2015.
I currently head up SuperRewards, a virtual currency startup acquired by Perk.com in 2015.
Those are three rosy sentences about long, hard grinds that were almost never pretty.
