Speaker

Dave McClure
500 Hats

Dave McClure has been geeking out in Silicon Valley for over fifteen years as a software developer, entrepreneur, startup advisor, angel investor, and internet marketing nerd. In the early 90's Dave was a database consultant for several evil empires, including Microsoft and Intel.

In 1994 he founded Aslan Computing, an Internet 1.0 startup that failed to IPO for a bazillion dollars (but still managed to get acquired). In 2001 Dave joined PayPal to create their developer network program, and in 2005 he launched and ran marketing for job search engine Simply Hired and its evil twin SimplyFired.com. Dave is currently an investor / advisor for Mint, Spock, Kiva.org, TeachStreet, Mashery, Simply Hired, HealthUnity, Canopy Financial, among other startups.

In addition to helping startups get started, Dave leads user groups and conferences on entrepreneurship, microfinance, venture capital, and search technology. For more about Dave's world, visit Master of 500 Hats, and his website
