Short bio on Dan:
I’ve been an entrepreneur most of my life – having started at 18 – failing twice (Maritime Vacation, NBHost) – before finally figuring it out. When I was 24 I bootstrapped Spheric Technologies, a social enterprise consulting and applications company. The company grew by 150%+ each year, raked in many business awards, employing 30+ before I sold it in May of 2008. After that, I took some time off, but eventually decided to move to San Francisco. After a few months, I co-founded Flowtown, a social marketing application, which raised venture funding and eventually got acquired by Demandforce.com (NASDAQ: INTU) in 2011. In January of 2012 I started Clarity, a platform that helps entrepreneurs find, schedule and pay for great advice over the phone to grow their business. We’ve raised $1.6M in funding from some amazing investors and are currently growing 30% each month. It’s a problem I’m passionate about solving and believe it has the potential to positively affect a billion people over the next 10 years.
Ethan Bloch, Co-Founder of Flowtown, started his first business at age 13 where he used the social channels of the day (chat rooms and instant messaging) to acquire customers. In college he created a video podcast and used YouTube, Twitter and Facebook to build a global fan base. Today he's the co-founder of Flowtown, a Small Business marketing tool that helps you acquire and retain customers through social media. Ethan shares his tips and personal experiences about using social media for business and how it can boil down into real measurable ROI.
