Although a lawyer by training and profession, Dan has been doing his best to bring out the entrepreneur in him. Instead of choosing a safe path to law firm partnership in sunny and peaceful Florida, Dan decided in the mid-1990s to return to his country of birth and partake in Romania’s transition (still ongoing) to a fully functional free market economy.
Since then he has been involved in a couple of successful start-ups, including the Biris Goran law firm which recently celebrated its 5th year anniversary. In the IT/online sectors, he has advised various multinationals, institutional investors and entrepreneurs since 2000 in the Central and East European region including Romania.
And speaking of Romania, he is firmly convinced that VentureConnect will launch a few millionaires, in fact billionaires in the next few years.
