Dan Ram is a 3x entrepreneur, prolific speaker, recording artist and startup coach. The son of an Indian diplomat, he draws inspiration from his eclectic background growing up in 10 countries, and he has actively worked on 5 continents.

Dan is a founder, investor and coach to more than 100 startups in multiple countries. He has advised the Irish National Government on their Entrepreneurship Policy, consulted for multinationals, hosted some of the largest startup events on the planet, mentored at accelerators and facilitated deal flows for investors. He lectures on entrepreneurship and is a regular speaker and emcee in the local and international startup circuit. He has shared the stage with some of the most influential changemakers in the world.

On this episode, you will hear Dan talk about:

  • How curiosity, consistency and excellence have helped him refine his talents over the years
  • How his first big event-hosting opportunity came as a result of a previous failure
  • Why being an introvert is a superpower, and why “nerves” on stage are a good thing
  • How he gets speaking gigs (hint: it’s not through pitching!)
  • How his philosophy of “start now start simple” has had a profound impact on people
  • Why he doesn’t have any clear-cut goals – and what drives him instead
