A serial entrepreneur and the founder of six companies, Dan Purvis has deep experience with small business. An engineering graduate of Texas A&M with an MBA from Rice University, Dan brings 25 years of practical know-how in creating corporate environments that people want to work in and clients want to engage. Dan realized that if you seek revenue first, relegate “culture” to a poster slogan, and shoehorn in customer care, you’ll reap dysfunction. But if you make promises you keep, put client success ahead of your own, protect your people and keep operations human—then loyalty, referrals, growth, and profit will follow. And the way you do that is through culture. Velentium, Dan’s current firm, began as a two-person operation in 2012. It now ranks #32 on the Inc. 5000 list of fastest-growing engineering companies nationwide, and has averaged 50% annual growth for nearly a decade. Dan’s purpose in writing 28 Days to Save the World is to share his insights, mistakes, and experience in building successful cultures with other leaders, so that together, we can make the world a better place to be human.
