Smartmates is Dan’s second consulting startup. His first, Melbourne based Mediaverse (www.mediaverse.com.au), analysed corporate reputation for many of Australia’s largest corporations. Dan single handedly built Mediaverse from his couch and within 5 years it became the world’s most awarded in its industry - winning over 16 global awards. Dan used cloud software to power the success of Mediaverse, and that experience led him to create Smartmates.Within 12 months and with offices in Melbourne and Bali, Smartmates grew from a team of four to a team of twenty one, serving some of Australia’s largest companies including Catch.com.au and Kogan.com. Partnering with Bali Investment Club (www.baliinvestment.club), Smartmates is positioned to become one of Indonesia’s software engineering success stories serving clients in Australia, New Zealand and the Americas.

111 The key things I do at Smartmates are setting up scalable systems and processes, coaching the emerging leaders to be global best consultants and setting and delivering upon the strategic mission for the company. The biggest challenge I face in my day to day work is striking the very careful balance between taking leaps towards the future and rapid growth of Smartmates with being conservative about what’s realistic and practical to ensure successful and stable month in month out operations. The part of my work that I love the most is seeing the growth and transformation of my team who join with little to no cloud software experience and within three months are technology consultant superstars who would impress any top tier Australian consultant with their commercial prowess.111
