500 Hats

Dave McClure likes to hang out with entrepreneurs, and occasionally help or invest in their startups if they let him. Dave has been geeking out in Silicon Valley for over twenty years, and has worked with companies such as PayPal, Mint, Founders Fund, Facebook, LinkedIn, SlideShare, Twilio, Simply Hired, O’Reilly Media, Intel, & Microsoft. Many years ago he used to do real work like coding or marketing or running conferences, but these days he mostly does useless stuff like sending lots of email, blogging, and hanging out on Facebook and Twitter. Dave also likes to play ultimate frisbee when his knees don’t hurt.

Fragment/TriOut

Think of me as the social media lead car on the Autobahn of the Internet. For more than four years, I’ve provided counsel to business leaders ranging from founders of small start-ups and representatives of non-profit organizations to CEOs of large and small corporations. For some, understanding the social media landscape is difficult. I help industry leaders maneuver through the lanes in the ever-changing Internet environment.
Be it social media strategy, Web apps, blogs or new ways to use mobile technology as both a marketing and a sales tool, I make sure that my clients receive the most up-to-date information about best-practices and industry standards for digital/online communities. Speaking engagements, arranging meetups, producing conferences and events are extensions of my capabilities.
