Achievements (products built, personal awards won):

Dale Ventures has invested millions of dollars in a number of high-potential companies, including Instanda, Rayo Credit, Arcadier, TechMet and Huma.
The company’s most recent move was to invest an additional £5.8 million in insure-tech firm Instanda, a venture CEO Dale Wood has called “genuinely innovative.” Other investments include seed funding for online marketplace builder Arcadier, more than $500,000 in Irish technology metal supply company TechMet and a commitment of up to $5 million to Rayo Credit Costa Rica as the business launches its expansion to Columbia.

If you're an entrepreneur or corporate innovator, why?

Why did you start your company or why do you want to innovate inside your company?

At Dale Ventures, primarily, we believe that the ability to drive growth continually creates value in the long term. For development, the necessary components are — clear and transparent communication, properly defined goals, and maintaining and building powerful teams. We must also not forget that in the quest to produce long-term value, patience and persistence are the keys. A mutually agreed upon multi-step blueprint of success needs to be drawn and followed zealously for staying ahead of the competition.

Full bio

After nearly two decades of founding, leading and overseeing various Internet-based companies, I decided to leverage my broad knowledge base and extensive industry contact list to focus on investing with high-potential entrepreneurs around the globe via Dale Ventures - Dale.com.

Through Dale Ventures, I’ve helped ideas become successful businesses and pushed entrepreneurs to capitalize on their potential by turning 22 years of experience into well-placed investments and mentorship. Operations are in my DNA, and while I still take on a management role when duty calls, I hope to spend the majority of my time jetting around the world and helping exciting ventures become the “next big thing.”
