Hi, I’m Derek Shanahan
I’m an entrepreneur & all-around curious person that’s been working in startup wonderland for more than ten years. I solve growth & marketing pain points for growing ecommerce and software companies. Denver’s the homebase these days.
I recently headed up SuperRewards, a virtual currency startup acquired by Perk.com in 2015. Perk was then acquired by RhythmOne, which through subsequent mergers became a 1000+ person adtech enterprise.
Prior to that I cofounded Foodtree, a foodtech startup based in Vancouver, Canada which was acquired by Mobify in 2015.
In the early Wild West days of social tech, I helped craft one of the world’s largest blogger communities for twenty-somethings. That was pre-Twitter though, so I’m not sure there’s any record of it.
