Daniel Clark – CEO of Brain.fm  

Belief leads and everything else follows it. If you actually don’t
believe you can be successful or create this, its a lot harder!

Daniel Clark is a serial entrepreneur, and the CEO of Brain.fm, an innovative technology company that helps users be more productive through the use of functional music created by composers and artificial intelligence. Daniel has been in love with technology and its potential to positively impact the world for as long as he can remember. From building websites when he was 13, starting a design and advertising business at 18, and driving $2MM in revenue for multinational brands as a director for a boutique ad agency, he has been at the forefront of how technology can exponentially grow successful businesses. One of Brain.fm’s first users, Clark called the company 12 times before they agreed to bring him in for an interview. When he did receive an offer, he jumped at it (even working for free for the first few weeks). He eventually moved up to Head of Technology, and is now the CEO. As CEO, Daniel is constantly striving to build a company that can not only change the world through music, but also be one of the best companies for people to work for and grow with. Daniel has visited over 20 countries across five continents, with plans to set foot on all seven (including Antarctica).
