David co-founded Lively, a connected home health platform that provides medical alert devices elders actually want to wear, passive activity sensors to share activities of daily living, and an open system for adding additional wireless health devices. In November 2015, Lively became part of GreatCall, Inc.
Prior to co-founding Lively, David was an Entrepreneur in Residence at Maveron LLC, a venture capital firm. Before that, he held senior positions at SYPartners, a transformation consultancy working with CEOs at Fortune 100 companies, and co-founded a popular iPad app to help people get Unstuck in life.
Earlier in his career, David was a product marketing manager at Apple, Inc. and held senior positions at Motricity and Kontiki. And perhaps his most rewarding experience is starting a nonprofit called CHALK, a nationally recognized early pioneer in integrating technology and the internet to provide transformational employment to at-risk youth. For David, Lively is a natural step forward in using technology to keep the people we value in our lives closer together.
Today, David has a consulting practice, working with CEOs and leadership teams around brand strategy, product development and leadership coaching. In addition, he currently serves as an Entrepreneur-in-Residence at Nokia Growth Partners, focusing on Digital Health.
