I’m Dan Bowyer – entrepreneur, consultant, investor.
I help tech startups and digitally focussed businesses be more, do more, have more. Need a helping hand raising, building a team or product, selling, finding new markets or getting exit ready? If we’re the right fit I’ll probably be able to help. Charging whatever you can afford.
How I can help
Get shit working
Create the right energy & infrastructure, enabling the right people to do the right things.
Find the right people
Get the right people on the bus and the world is your lobster. It’s people first. Always.
Stuck at a stage of business? Let’s shift the energy and get creative, I’ll bring the crayons.
As boring as it can be, getting the back end of the business shiny is super paramount.

Charge for all NHS services, at the point of delivery. There I said it (*Ducks thrown rotten veg) I have a very sick Mum, she’s been ill for many years and it’s somewhat of a medical miracle she’s still here at all. One thing for sure is that she’s only still with us thanks to … Read MoreRead More
I read a comment this morning on Twitter that said something like – ‘Does your job involve digital? If not, it soon will’. I’m not sure that’s totally true, should you be milking cows, or painting the Mona Lisa, but it did remind me how we haven’t yet touched the sides of how important tech … Read MoreRead More

I recently landed back in the UK looking for something to do, having been in Cape Town for 4 years. I offered a grand (£s not Rand ;) to anyone who would open their black book, reconnect me with the London business/tech scene, and help me find my next adventure. I imaginatively titled the project … Read MoreRead More
Chatting with a friend in Cape Town, talking about moving back to London next month and what to do with myself work wise. I need a new challenge and I’m sure I’m good for something! We figured with the internet bringing people closer together, I could maybe incentivise my wider network to help me find … Read MoreRead More
I’ve always enjoyed this joke at work – “What’s the largest export of Brazil”, you ask. They say “Coffee isn’t it?”. …and you say “Yes please”. Ba doom toosh. A little juvenile but always makes me smile. However, just came across this published in Time online from GlobalPost, which actually shows the largest exports from … Read MoreRead More
