When to Be a Less Controlling Manager - Dan Street

In Chapter 8 of 20 of his 2011 Capture Your Flag interview, software entrepreneur and Loku founder and CEO Dan Street shares how he has adapted his management style to be less controlling. A self proclaimed "control freak", Street learns the amount of control varies between working on later stage and early stage companies.

Street is the founder and CEO of Loku (previously named 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.
