I’m a company of one. I am what you get.
Everything on this website and what I do for entrepreneurs is done by me
With that out the way, I’m Denis
I help entrepreneurs build disruptive business models. This helps you avoid many of the mistakes that kill most startups. It also gives you a chance of building a business that will forever change your industry.
There’s an old song by Baz Luhrman where he talks about one of the most interesting people he knows still not knowing what they want to do at age 40.
I wish I’d known what I wanted to do. It’s been a long and winding path to figure that out. Along the way, I’ve done a huge number of things that make people’s jaws drop.
Those are some of the highlights but the one that captures most about me is the explorer. I love new ideas. I love new places. Left to myself I put on a backpack and head into the urban or tropical jungles and see interesting things.
At work, I love playing with the ideas that entrepreneurs. Every conversation is the kernel of a new idea, a possibility emerging, a potential to be examined.

I ended up being creative in business
Maybe I’m the Dali of disruption, the Bach of business models or the Ibbotson of innovation. Maybe not.
In any case, I turned out to be pretty good at understanding business models, describing them and then improving them.
And with 25 years experience, working in dozens of industries, with thousands of entrepreneurs and reading over 10,000 books I’m good at pulling ideas from different places together in novel ways that give you an advantage.
The downside. You still have to execute. I don’t do that
