David Orban
Seed stage startup and AI investor

David is an alert analyst of the global technology landscape, applying cycles of accelerating technological change to the needs of high-growth organisations. He has deep understanding of the needs and mechanics of both product marketing, sales development, localisation, and globalisation.

Orban’s vision is at the crossroads of technology and society as defined by their coevolution. There are times when things change fast, and this is one of themTo be able and act from the position where the perspective on this change is accessible is a true privilege.

“What is the question that I should be asking?” is Orban’s motto. Meta-analyses, and meta-rules are the tools of the trade when going breadth first is an advantage. The new renaissance is also about cutting across the limits of deep specialisation. Tolerating high levels of pressure, and frequent mistakes, accelerating cycles of invention and innovation build the new worlds ahead of us.
