About Dan:
Dan Bradbury is the owner of a private equity group and his primary focus is as an investor who specializes in taking companies already producing seven figures in revenue and accelerates their growth to over 10 million.

His love of numbers and finances is what sets him apart and allows him to find the hidden assets and weaknesses within the businesses that he invests in and the business owners that he consults.

He started out with nothing and built himself up from the ground up.

Dan has over 15 years of business experience in a huge range of industries. He has founded, built and sold two companies for seven figures and has invested in over a dozen other companies on top of the five businesses that he has purchased outright.

Dan’s specialty is maximizing the value of a business, whether it be simply to keep the business and reap the rewards or to exit the business for a big payout he has done on seven different occasions.
