Danny Mekić was proclaimed ‘most successful young entrepreneur in the Netherlands’ by Sprout, a magazine published by Management Team. The magazine Elsevier listed him as one of the 50 greatest talents in the Netherlands, and Quote included him in their list of ‘hotshots’ under 40 years of age. Dutch newspaper NRC Handelsblad called him the most wanted expert from the business world on Dutch television. This is how Danny has come to be known in the Netherlands: a technology expert and a successful young entrepreneur.
What most people don’t know is that he’s also been asked to develop an online strategy for the police, which he did successfully. He was also asked by Raj Patel, former CEO of Exact NV, to redevelop Exact Online: an online accounting solution that’s now used by nearly 300,000 companies around the world. Danny isn’t just an entrepreneur, but also an innovator for prominent clients (he prefers to avoid the word ‘consultant’, with its connotations of churning out paper reports but not delivering tangible results).
In recent years, he has not only expanded his own startups and companies, but also worked on the renowned online strategy of the Dutch airline KLM, developed a new outlook on the future for PON — the company that imports Volkswagen, Audi, Porsche and other car brands into the Netherlands — leading to a new strategy, and helped Dutch bank ING to permanently ward off DDoS attacks on their online banking services. He’s also been appointed by the Ministers of Economic Affairs and of Education, Culture and Science to be the youngest member ever of an official governmental advisory board.
Danny, who was proclaimed ‘guest lecturer of the year’ by Fontys students and is the highest rated teacher within the Innovation programme at Nyenrode Business University, has made his way to the absolute top. Together with a team trained by him, he now works independently on successful innovations for 40 of the 100 biggest organisations in the Netherlands, as well as for more and more clients abroad. To achieve this we rely on a method developed by Danny, which is best described as a combination of concept development, consultancy, inspiring people and spending (at most) two days a month actively working at the client’s organisation — supported by stimulating lectures and workshops from the best lecturers and trainers, and when possible from Danny himself.
He still works as an entrepreneur and appears on TV and the radio on a weekly basis, but Danny and his team are always up for an interesting challenge.
