My name is David Hopkins and I am a Management Consultant and Angel Investor. I founded Double Chase Consultants in 2004 to help companies grow by providing hands-on guidance and advice.
I work closely with my clients as a management consultant, a member of their advisory board, and sometimes as an investor, to provide and develop:
Capital and Strategic Planning
Management Strategies and Go-to-Market Strategies
Guidance on Structuring for Growth
CEO and other team member’s Mentorship
I seek to partner with companies where I see a passionate and resourceful team of people dedicated to their purpose. For early stage firms I look for ingenuity - products and services striving to develop an unmet need in their market. I work with a variety of companies including:
Early-stage companies and businesses needing succession planning
Companies in pursuit of growth and exposure
Companies undertaking cultural change
I founded Double Chase Consultants because I believe I can help people pinpoint and create actionable strategies to address the problems facing their businesses.
From a young age I volunteered in many community organizations including the Boy Scouts, numerous non-profits, and Angel Flight, an organization of volunteer pilots providing free air transport for medical patients. The listening and leadership skills I developed through these experiences served me well throughout my work life.
As my career developed, including time in high tech sales, marketing, program management and senior executive roles with major worldwide companies, it was always paralleled with mentoring others. Board Members, CEOs, and those just starting their careers, valued my discretion and honesty and sought me out to provide advice, feedback and support. Over time I realized that I wanted to focus my energy on helping companies find the solutions to their most pressing needs.
Double Chase Consultants began as a management consultancy, and has since evolved to include Angel investing, and select mentoring projects. I have had the privilege of helping numerous businesses realize their full potential. Get in touch and see what I can do for your company.
