After starting out as an investment banker in London, Daniel quickly figured that he didn’t want to be just another cog in the machine. Always having had an analytical streak, the convergence of marketing, analytics, product and many more disciplines into “growth” turned out to make growth marketing the perfect fit for him.
Having worked as Head of Growth and Data Insights at Sellable, a Sydney prop-tech start-up, Daniel decided it was time to start out himself and build ikaros, a now-established boutique growth marketing and analytics consultancy leveraging data to deliver high-performance growth strategies for scale-ups and SMEs.

What business would you build on Mars?
I’m thinking about luxury items. Think about plant-based items...If you're taking seeds for example, it's like very little mass that you need to take to Mars, which obviously, mass is really valuable for you. If you can, successfully grow something even if it's just in your bank or so on Mars and sell that maybe back on earth, that's going to be like a novelty, really unique, luxury item. So it's obviously going to command a massive markup.
