Dan Wasserman is a serial entrepreneur and the founder of Mammoth Health Innovation. He also served as an Executive in Residence at ventureLAB for almost six years where he created the Healthcare Ecosphere, one of three provincially recognized healthcare innovation initiatives. He is a CATA Advocate for Procurement Modernization in Canada.

Dan started his career in the advertising agency business rising to the senior management ranks in short order. He then went on to build the first business dedicated to competitive intelligence, which was sold to AC Nielsen. He next co-founded a technology company dedicated to protecting creator rights as the entertainment industry transitioned from analog to digital. After nearly three years of working with Hollywood, he created the promotion that generated over $25 million in first year revenue for Sympatico™ to secure it as the largest Internet service provider in Canada. From there Dan consulted for a number of emerging technologies until one of his US clients convinced him to relocate to Virginia, just outside of Washington, DC.

In 2010, after eleven years of working in the DC area, Dan returned to Canada. For five of those years he headed the DC office of a government contractor where he dealt with top Pentagon brass and senior law enforcement officials (including the Joint Terrorism Task Force). In 2006 he was one of three finalists for the “Innovation of the Year Award” by the International Association of Chiefs of Police (IACP). During his final years in DC he formed a partnership with Dr. Bruce Merrifield, the creator of three pieces of key US legislation that still drive American innovation; the Limited Liability Company (LLC), the Small Business Innovation and Research (SBIR) program, and INPACT, the model that underpins the commercial successes of such countries as Israel, Ireland, and India.

Dan has a BSc (Biology) from the University of Toronto and an MBA (Marketing) from York University/Schulich School of Business.
