Dave Schneider was the cofounder of an influencer marketing software NinjaOutreach, a bootstrapped company with 20 people and over 500 customers. 

He’s also a graduate from Harvard with a degree in Applied Math, where in 2012 he quit his corporate job to travel the world with his wife, where during that time he launched and exited from his first SaaS company, NinjaOutreach, an influencer marketing platform.

Nowadays he runs Shortlist.io, a digital marketing "un-agency", with a team of 20 people, where they offer businesses SEO conversion rate optimization, A/B testing, content marketing & strategy while being completely transparent.
