I worked with Dan Roberts throughout 2013 and 2014 to develop the idea of Loka. During that time we developed the business plan for creating a really special travel company based on an ethos of #travelwithmeaning. Dan contributed to the development of the brand, financial model, online marketing plan, technology, business plan and fund-raising. In November 2014 I launched Loka in Australia. I still converse with Dan almost weekly just touching base on how we are going. I highly recommend working alongside Dan on any project.
First Table had a last minute opportunity to present a business plan to a potential investor. Knowing Dan’s experience and reputation in the startup/incubator sector I engaged him to formulate the plan on our behalf. Following an intensive business interrogation via Skype, Dan developed and delivered a business plan that represented exactly what I was after and exceeded what I was capable of producing myself. I can unreservedly recommend Dan to anyone requiring assistance putting their “business plan in their head” onto paper.

We start our collaboration with Dan Roberts on March 2015 when we presented him Hypocam, a unique project to create the perfect app for black and white photography. Before our collaboration started, we publish our project on Kickstarter but we failed it as we didn’t plan a marketing campaign During the collaboration Dan contributed to the project with the development of a strong online marketing plan, a business plan and some creative ideas. We are still working with Dan and we strongly recommend to work with him on any project as he is very professional, reliable and with lots of great ideas.
