Chief Executive Officer
As the CEO for Entrepreneurship for All (EforAll), David is leading the organization’s efforts to execute its growth plans to new cities across the US, while making sure the existing programs continue to improve in their service to entrepreneurs. David joined EforAll in 2010 and founded its community-based entrepreneurship program, working closely with entrepreneurs, mentors, experts, partner organizations, and local advisory boards.
Prior to joining EforAll in early 2013, David spent 15 years working on six entrepreneurial ventures, in some cases as part of the initial team and in others as the founder or co-founder. Four of these companies achieved significant success: Viaweb was sold to Yahoo, Direct Hit was acquired by Ask Jeeves, TripAdvisor continues today as a standalone public company (NASDAQ: TRIP), and SoundBite Communications went public and then was acquired by Genesys. In 2016 David became a Draper Richards Kaplan Foundation Entrepreneur.
Prior to his time with Internet startups, David worked in the publishing industry for a variety of magazine and newspaper companies, including International Data Group, Time Magazine, and the Fort Worth Star-Telegram. David has an MBA with honors from Harvard Business School and a B.A. with honors from Harvard College.
David lives in Boston, MA, with his wife, Janet Tiampo, in their empty nest, their two children having flown the coop. David is an avid cyclist and trail runner as long as he’s not injured!
