Daniel Davenport's understanding of the evolving digital landscape enables him to help clients capitalize on constantly changing trends, technologies, and marketplace conditions. Davenport has a proven record of anticipating and acting on cultural macro-trends that create new markets, services, and products. Davenport currently works with THINK Interactive's clients to develop digital ecosystems that drive clients' online business goals.
Returning to THINK in 2005, Davenport, as the director of THINKlab, quickly capitalized on the burgeoning market for mobile data connectivity and off-browser applications working for companies like Windstream, Orkin, Sears, and Vitamin Water. He created and led efforts around the connected consumer, the quantified self, and the Internet of Things, as well as talking way too much about NFC payment technologies.
Working for CTN Media Group, Davenport built one of the first user-generated content and social networking sites, Wetair, which was purchased by MTV as a part of Viacom's acquisition of CTN in 2002. In the late 1990s, Davenport was a lead investor and board member of Globopolis, the first major internet company in Eastern Europe, with offices in Prague, Berlin, Budapest, Vienna, Warsaw, Riga, Munich, Krakow, and Ljubljana.
In 1993, Davenport founded one of the first interactive marketing and developments firms, where he helped pioneers such as BellSouth, First Data, Turner/TimeWarner, and Invesco establish digital presences to use the internet for commercial purposes.
Davenport holds a B.A. in Philosophy, an M.A. in Psychology, and an Ed.S. in Instructional Technology.
