At a young age, Dan Martell learned that if he was going to the play the game, he was going to play it big. From Moncton to San Francisco, Martell has left an imprint as a wildly successful and award-winning Canadian entrepreneur who’s started, grown, and exited two companies while putting his hometown on the map.

“When I started Clarity, I raised $1.6 million from like Mark Cuban and a bunch of other cool investors, and made them wire the money to TD bank on Main Street, Moncton, New Brunswick.”

Martell is the founder of Clarity, a platform that connects business minds by phone to advisors who support by answering any questions an entrepreneur might have. He currently works as a top advisor and coach for performing SaaS startups.

In this week’s #StartupPodcast, fellow New Brunswicker and host Rivers Corbett talks to Martell about his story as an east coast entrepreneur turned global success.
