Daniel Batten

The first kiwi to attend San Diego’s famous “Connect” programme in 2003 – Daniel used this experience to build his company’s culture on excellence across the only thing an entrepreneur should care about: your pitch and your product. His company achieved many first’s including kickstart angel investing in this country. The approach was successful and the company did for molecular biologists what Google did for search; it changed the way molecular biologists did research globally and is now as ubiquitous as Google in Universities and research labs the world over.

Today, Daniel is a parallel entrepreneur – he grows 10-20 companies at one time. His XWX program is setting a new high-tide mark for the speed and depth of entrepreneurial growth that is possible, not just in NZ but globally – with a 100% success rate at helping companies achieve investment, or grow revenue. The average company he works with grows revenues by 152% – enough to make the average company he works with into a Deloitte Fast50 Company. To date, he has helped companies raise a total of $US667Million. Yes, you read that right.

XWX is for “GEMS” – Geniuses, Engineers, Mavericks and Scientists who have foundered companies. GEMS he works with achieve their result because they have upgraded themselves as founder to version 2.0. This involves taking on the “sales gene”.

Daniel likes measuring things – so here are the numbers for client results in the last two quarter …
