Dan Levitan
Co-Founder Maveron
Dan is a transplant from New York, a fact given away the second he says "cawfee". He lives in Seattle now, having brought with him twenty-five years of experience in venture capital and investment banking (specializing in consumer and retail business). Please don't call him an "ex-investment banker," and let's leave it at that.
In 1998 Dan saw an opportunity to help innovative companies reach their full potential. That's when he launched Maveron with a guy named Howard Schultz, chairman, president and chief executive officer of a coffee company named Starbucks.
Dan has led many Maveron investments, including Cranium, Potbelly Sandwich Works, and Pinkberry. He's also directed a number of successful exits over the last ten years, including Auctionpay (acquired by Global Payments Inc., NASDAQ: GPN), Capella Education Company (NASDAQ: CPLA), Cranium (acquired by Hasbro, NASDAQ: HAS), Quellos (acquired by Blackrock, NASDAQ: BLK), Good Technology (acquired by Motorola, NASDAQ: MOT), and Shutterfly (NASDAQ: SFLY). Dan currently serves on boards of directors for Internet REIT, Kinetix Living, NextFoods, Pinkberry, Potbelly Sandwich Works, The Motley Fool, and Trupanion. He is also a board member for The Rock Center for Entrepreneurship at Harvard Business School. He enjoys helping future entrepreneurial leaders, and has participated as a judge and mentor for several years in the annual Harvard Business School Business Plan Competition.
Incredibly, Dan does have personal time, which he devotes to his wife and two daughters. He also loves Duke basketball, which can't fairly be held against him. And give him props: he's climbed Mount Kilimanjaro once and Mount Rainier twice, solidifying his love for Marmot and the Pacific Northwest.
Dan graduated from the Horace Mann School and received a BA, magna cum laude, from Duke University, and an MBA from Harvard Business School.
