What Entrepreneur Learned in Trenches of Private Equity - Dan Street

In Chapter 5 of 20 of his 2010 Capture Your Flag interview, entrepreneur Dan Street compares job experiences from his current startup role to his previous roles as a turnaround specialist at Kohlberg, Kravis and Roberts (KKR) and as a Bain & Co. management consultant. Consultant and private equity roles are about finding faults, whereas entrepreneurial efforts solve problems toward a positive vision. Entrepreneur roles become further challenging given the lack of structure. Street specifically sites the challenges of dealing with ambiguity and self doubt as an entrepreneur.
Street is the founder and CEO of Austin, Texas based Loku (previously Borrowed Sugar) which develops Internet software to strengthen local communities.  Previously, Street worked in private equity at Kohlberg, Kravis, and Roberts (KKR) and management consulting at Bain & Co.  He earned a BA in music and business from Rice University.
