DTN Ventures - Investment Thesis
Damn the Naysayers
DTN Ventures is an early stage investor with a mission inspired by our friend and mentor who lived boldly by principles like “Don’t bet against Brett” and “Damn the naysayers”. He was a serial entrepreneur whose infectious enthusiasm and energetic intellect touched everything he did, and everyone he worked with. He loved a great idea, he executed with class, and ties weren’t optional. If you are an entrepreneur or a founder with an idea or an early stage company, and you like our attitude, we want to back you (ties optional).
