Meet the KorePartners: Dan Eyman, Meld Valuation
This post is part of a series of short interviews about the companies and faces that are part of the KorePartners Ecosystem*.
We believe that behind every great company there are people, and behind every person, there is a story to tell.
Born in: Seattle, USA
Based in: San Francisco, USA
What was your first job?
My first job was washing dishes for $4.00/hour at an Italian restaurant.
How and when did you get involved in the business industry?
I used to be a research scientist. My background is/was in Molecular Biology. Not wanting to pursue a PHD I opted to pursue my MBA and rest is history.
How do you see the SME scene today? In that aspect, is it possible to have an idea of what the next five years will bring?
I think it is promising. I believe the level of venture and PE funding will level off in the coming years forcing companies to focus more on profitability and core business, while some might debate, I think this is a good shift for the SME market.
What does your company bring to the KorePartners Ecosystem?
We bring focused and tailored valuation services combined with a rigor not seen at other firms, all at a reasonable price.
What is it about the partnership with KoreConX that most aligns with your company strategy
Being of service both professionally and personally is part of our mission. I have seen this resonate across both companies.
