DAN HECK

Dan joined OpenView in 2019. He focuses on companies that use bits and bytes to move people, money, or things in the real world.

He spends most of his time learning about and then diligencing new companies. In the portfolio, he works most closely with our investments in Highspot, Postscript, project44, Zipwhip, and Optimize Health.

No matter who you are or where you live, work is likely a big part of your identity. Our job is to partner with entrepreneurs to help all of us get more from the time we spend working, whether you are in the C-Suite, the warehouse, working from home, or anywhere else.

 

Prior to OpenView, he was an Investor at Touchdown Ventures, where he set up and ran venture funds for large corporations. He also spent time working with early-stage entrepreneurs in the Midwest at Hyde Park Angels. He began his career in supply chain and e-commerce at Target’s Corporate HQ in Minneapolis.


People

Our people, here to help yours.

In March, to help stop the spread of COVID-19, we temporarily closed our office in Boston and became a fully remote team overnight. We all miss being in the same place together, but we’ve adapted to the current environment and have fully embraced Zoom and Slack so we can stay as connected as possible.
