He graduated from Harvard in 2009 godinat, but all attempts to joining Goldman Sachs and Morgan Stanley ended in failure. “Things did not look good. My employment experience at the time was unpaid summer internship is a small company in San Francisco … I had no experience, “says Daniel. This was due mainly to the crisis and the lack of vacancies in the majority of companies.
After a year in thoughts and despair, however, he and his friend Nicolas Desmaris who leaves from Bain & Co. decided to create, AppDirect, which is actually very similar to Google Play, but only based on business applications. Currently the company is estimated at nearly $ 600 million since the beginning of 2014 until now, she notes a double of value.
