We’re founders and tech junkies — your first call, the coach in the corner, and a kick in the ass when you need it most. We don’t split angel, seed and pre-seed into separate categories — we provide support across the board.

Dan FriesCo-Founder of Next Ventures Group
Dan is a veteran in the digital marketing industry, having been a keynote speaker on the subject of growth marketing and SEO. Prior to founding Next Ventures, Dan was an associate scientist at the Dana Farber Institute at Harvard and MIT, co-authoring two publications under the guidance of Matthew Meyerson. There, Dan learned how Google's PageRank algorithm was based on scientific citation convention, and the mechanics of ranking in search engines mirrored those behind determining the most authoritative scientific research. Realizing that a career in digital marketing aligned better with his passions, Dan launched, grew and sold multiple digital businesses, later co-founding Next Ventures Group with Sia. Under their management, the company quickly grew to millions in ARR, fully bootstrapped without outside investment.
