Kairos Europe counts over 80 full-time and part-time workers and is supported by personalities such as Bill Clinton and Richard Branson.
Daniel has built three companies: Emoti, which measured emotional intelligence based on sound wave frequency analysis and was sold in 2017, www.ewor.org - which increases Europe's innovation power by enabling entrepreneurship in risk-averse environments and www.unlimitix.com - which produces science-based content aimed at improving daily productivity. Emoti was sold, EWOR is profitable and Unlimitix raised a 6-figure seed round.

Being equipped with both business and tech skills, he combines those two realms to achieve his mission.
