I am the person who connected Daniel up to the company with a solid recommendation…which was more than a ‘warm lead’. I worked for a fund that invested in the CTO’s former company and watched first hand how he dealt with the trials and tributions of startup life. In short he is a no-nonsense, honest person. The recommendation I made was on the basis of that relationship. Unfortunately the CEO was an x-factor that I had not fully factored in prior to making the introduction. If there was a lapse of judgement it was on me, as I should have offered a more qualified referral to Daniel.
