Dan Danilov

Operations Manager

What do you do at Blackbird?

Contrary to what my initials might suggest, I actually help run the engine room of Blackbird. This means supporting Alex, our COO, with everything from investor reporting to compliance.

What did you do before Blackbird?

I've had a bit of a reversal of the 'typical' journey. I was a founder myself at 20 years of age, then worked at a couple of startups before moving into the corporate world of strategy consulting.

What do you believe that others do not?

If you’re not failing, you’re not pushing your limits, and if you’re not pushing your limits, you’re not maximizing your potential.

What ideas are you excited by right now?

How autonomous cars could completely disrupt societies and global economies.
